Real-time simulation of dust behavior generated by a fast traveling vehicle
Jim X. Chen, Xiadong Fu, J. Wegman
Pages: 81-104
DOI: 10.1145/333296.333366
Simulation of physically realistic complex dust behavior is very useful in training, education, art, advertising, and entertainment. There are no published models for real-time simulation of dust behavior generated by a traveling vehicle. In...

The theory of direct probability redistribution and its application to rare event simulation
Zsolt Haraszti, J. Keith Townsend
Pages: 105-140
DOI: 10.1145/333296.333349
Rare event simulation is an important area of simulation theory, producing algorithms that can significantly reduce the simulation time when analyzing problems that involve rare events. However, existing rare event simulation techniques are...

OOPM/RT: a multimodeling methodology for real-time simulation
Kangsun Lee, Paul A. Fishwick
Pages: 141-170
DOI: 10.1145/333296.333339
When we build a model of real-time systems, we need ways of representing the knowledge about the system and also time requirements for simulating the model. Considering these different needs, our question is “How can we determine the...

Automating parallel simulation using parallel time streams
Victor Yau
Pages: 171-201
DOI: 10.1145/333296.333359
This paper describes a package for parallel steady-state stochastic simulation that was designed to overcome problems caused by long simulation times experienced in our ongoing research in performance evaluation of high-speed and...
