Rejection-inversion to generate variates from monotone discrete distributions
W. Hörmann, G. Derflinger
Pages: 169-184
DOI: 10.1145/235025.235029
For discrete distributions a variant of reject from a continuous hat function is presented. The main advantage of the new method, called rejection-inversion, is that no extra uniform random number to decide between acceptance...

Analysis of an efficient algorithm for the hard-sphere problem
Alan T. Krantz
Pages: 185-209
DOI: 10.1145/235025.235030
Many similar algorithms for performing simulations of hard-sphere have been presented. Among these algorithms are those designed by Rapaport (RAP), Lubachevsky (LUB), Krantz (HAD), and Marin (HYBRID). These algorithms exhibit a similar design in...

Parallel execution for serial simulators
David Nicol, Philip Heidelberger
Pages: 210-242
DOI: 10.1145/235025.235031
This article describes an approach to discrete event simulation modeling that appears to be effective for developing portable and efficient parallel execution of models of large distributed systems and communication networks. In this approach,...
