Intractability results in discrete-event simulation
(EDP SCIENCES, 1995)
Simulation is often viewed as a modeling methodology of last resort. This is due to the lack of automated algorithms and procedures that exist to aid in the construction and analysis of simulation models. Jacobson and ...
The simple virtual environment library: An extensible framework for building VE applications
(MIT Press, 2000-04-01)
As virtual environment (VE) technology becomes accessible to (and affordable for) an ever-widening audience of users, the demand for VE applications will increase. Tools that assist and facilitate the development of these ...
Optimal Sampling Laws for Stochastically Constrained Simulation Optimization on Finite Sets
Consider the context of selecting an optimal system from among a finite set of competing systems, based on a "stochastic" objective function and subject to multiple "stochastic" constraints. In this context, we characterize ...
Fitting the Ph-t/M-t/s/c Time-Dependent Departure Process for Use in Tandem Queueing Networks
This paper considers time-dependent Ph-t/M-t/s/c queueing nodes and small tandem networks of such nodes. We examine characteristics of the departure processes from a multiserver queueing node; in particular, we focus on ...
The Effects of Text Drawing Styles, Background Textures, and Natural Lighting on Text Legibility in Outdoor Augmented Reality
(MIT Press, 2006-02-01)
A challenge in presenting augmenting information in outdoor augmented reality (AR) settings lies in the broad range of uncontrollable environmental conditions that may be present, specifically large-scale fluctuations in ...
