MIS 850 - System Modeling and Simulation
3 Credit(s) The course introduces the basic concepts and principles of modeling of various systems, from simple systems such as waiting lines at service stations to complex systems such as diffusion of innovation and the financial markets. Model validation and exploration will be carried out with simulation. Traditional simulation such as discrete event simulation as well as agent-based modeling and simulation will be studied. Three lecture hours per week.
Pre-requisite: MIS 800 or permission of instructor
