Course content

Lectures: Modeling and models. Models classification. Model parameters. Validation and verification. Simulation tools. Simulation of continuous systems. Languages ​​for simulating continuous systems. Discrete event simulation. Languages ​​for discrete-event simulation. Simulation on the web. Distributed and parallel simulation. Artificial intelligence and simulation. Probability and statistics in the simulation. Virtual reality. 3D modeling.

Practical exercises: Simulation of continuous systems, CSMP. Discrete event simulation, GPSS. Development of a 3D model using Blender software solutions. Integration and implementation of 3D models in a web environment using X3D technology.

The aim of the course is to give clear and comprehensive overview the basic ideas and possibilities of computer simulation.
