The emphasis is on modeling the stochastic dynamic system as a discrete event system, and analyzing and improving its performance by means of discrete event simulation. The topics covered include generating random numbers, variance reduction methods, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, selecting input distributions, and model validation. The course also teaches the statistical output analysis and the use of simulation in optimization and learning.
