Stochastic Resources 2

The ORMM text and site contain a variety of resources for modeling with uncertainty and risk. Because of the large number of topics we have divided the list into two parts.

18 Simulation

  • 18.1 Nature and Motivation for Simulation
  • 18.2 Model Components
  • 18.3 Inverse Transformation Method for Generating Random Variates
  • 18.4 Simulating Complex Random Variables
  • 18.5 Discrete Event Dynamic Simulation
  • 18.6 Simulation of Inventory System
  • 18.7 Steps in a Simulation Study
  • 18.8 Implementation Issues
  • 18.9 Analysis of Simulation Output
  • 18.10 Assessment of Methodology
  • 18.11 Exercises
  • Bibliography
