    Simulation has been described by Shannon1as "the process of designing a computerized model of a system (or process) and conducting experiments with this model for the purpose either of understanding the behavior of the system or of evaluating various strategies for the operation of the system." It follows from this definition that we must concern ourselves with a precise formulation of ... View full abstract»

    As microprocessors find wider and wider application in system design, it is becoming increasingly important to simulate these elements in large integrated systems. At Southern Illinois University, NASA-sponsored work on avionics system design has motivated related work in the simulation of microprocessor systems. In particular, an effort was undertaken to simulate an Intel 3000 chip set, which was... View full abstract»

    Compared to even the most complex engineering systems, physiological systems are enormously difficult ones in which to conduct direct parametric studies. In this paper, we look at the application of computer simulation techniques to the study of pulmonary diffusion—a physiological process that is especially difficult to study in vivo ( i.e., experiments conducted on a living subject).

    One of the more critical problems in computing science today is the rapidly increasing cost of developing and maintaining software for new automated data systems. New software development is generally a standardized process whereby software evolves from an idea to a useful system operating on a computer. The traditional model for a software development project includes feasibility study, requireme... View full abstract»

    Two particularly nagging ailments faced by the computer industry today are the high cost and late delivery of software.1,2The symptoms usually surface during software debugging, testing, and integration; but the ailments themselves can most often be traced back to the program design phase and the structural characteristics of the program. The significance of program structural character... View full abstract»

    From an educational standpoint, science museums and computers have shared a common characteristic: both have tended to be static and passive, offering little opportunity for participation in or access to technology. A museum visit, always a culturally respectable way to spend a Saturday afternoon, generally involves a lot of walking, looking, and listening, but little touching or participating. Li...

    Since the announcement of the first commercial microprocessor in 1971, integrated CPU's have evolved from mere laboratory curiosities to ubiquitous fundamental system building blocks. Moreover, rapid advances in LSI technology during the early 1970' s have resulted in ever larger RAMs and ROMs–RAMs containing 4096 bits on a single chip are already being delivered in quantity and chips contai...
