Digital Simulation


a method of investigating real phenomena, processes, devices, or systems that is based on the study of mathematical models with the aid of digital computers. The program executed by the computer is also a kind of model of the subject of the investigation. Special problem-oriented simulation languages are used in digital simulation. CSMP, which was developed in the USA in the 1960’s, is an example of a commonly used language. Digital simulation is distinguished by its clarity of representation and is characterized by a high degree of automation of the investigation of real phenomena, processes, devices, or systems.
