On the Marginal Standard Error Rule and the Testing of Initial Transient Deletion Methods
Rob J. Wang, Peter W. Glynn
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/2961052

In the planning of steady-state simulations, a central issue is the initial transient problem, in which an initial segment of the simulation output is adversely contaminated by initialization bias. Our article makes several contributions toward...

A Bayesian Approach to Parameter Inference in Queueing Networks
Weikun Wang, Giuliano Casale, Charles Sutton
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2893480

The application of queueing network models to real-world applications often involves the task of estimating the service demand placed by requests at queueing nodes. In this article, we propose a methodology to estimate service demands in closed...

MTSS -- A Marine Traffic Simulation System and Scenario Studies for a Major Hub Port
Shell Ying Huang, Wen Jing Hsu, Hui Fang, Tiancheng Song
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2897512

Hub ports need to ensure that their navigational networks can fulfill increased demand in marine traffic. They also need to assess the possible impacts of an accident resulting in partial or complete closure of navigation channels. For lack of...

Cycle-Accurate Network on Chip Simulation with Noxim
Vincenzo Catania, Andrea Mineo, Salvatore Monteleone, Maurizio Palesi, Davide Patti
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/2953878

The on-chip communication in current Chip-MultiProcessors (CMP) and MultiProcessor-SoC (MPSoC) is mainly based on the Network-on-Chip (NoC) design paradigm. Unfortunately, it is foreseen that conventional NoC architectures cannot sustain the...

Multivariate Input Uncertainty in Output Analysis for Stochastic Simulation
Wei Xie, Barry L. Nelson, Russell R. Barton
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/2990190

When we use simulations to estimate the performance of stochastic systems, the simulation is often driven by input models estimated from finite real-world data. A complete statistical characterization of system performance estimates requires...

Exploiting Social Capabilities in the Minority Game
Franco Cicirelli, Libero Nigro
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/2996456

The minority game (MG) is an inductive binary-decision model that is able to study emergent behaviors in a population of agents who compete, through adaptation, for scarce resources. The original formulation of the game was inspired by the W.B....
