Optimizing static calendar queues
K. Bruce Erickson, Richard E. Ladner, Anthony Lamarca
Pages: 179-214
DOI: 10.1145/361026.361028
The calendar queue is an important implementation of a priority queue that is particularly useful in discrete event simulators. We investigate the performance of the static calendar queue that maintains N active events. The main...

The implementation of temporal intervals in qualitative simulation graphs
Ricki G. Ingalls, Douglas J. Morrice, Andrew B. Whinston
Pages: 215-240
DOI: 10.1145/361026.361030
In this paper we develop and implement a simulation modeling methodology that combines discrete event simulation with qualitive simulation. Our main reason for doing so is to extend the application of discrete event simulation to systems found...

Simultaneous events and lookahead in simulation protocols
Vikas Jha, Rajive Bagrodia
Pages: 241-267
DOI: 10.1145/361026.361032
A discrete event simulation model may contain several events that have the same timestamp, referred to as simultaneous events. In general, the results of a simulation depend on the order in which simultaneous events are executed. Simulation...

Supporting large-scale distributed simulation using HLA
Tainchi Lu, Chungnan Lee, Wenyang Hsia, Mingtang Lin
Pages: 268-294
DOI: 10.1145/361026.361034
This article describes the design of a Web-based environment to support large-scale distributed simulation using Java and IEEE standard P1516 high level architecture (HLA) framework and rules. Based on the run-time infrastructure (RTI) services...
