    Web based environments will typically need to maintain many documents (e.g. simulation model information and data results from multiple sites). Ideally, this information would be held in a widely utilized and highly viewable format. The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is a new standard that meets this criteria for World Wide Web based applications. It is sophisticated enough so that complex real ... View full abstract»

    Meta data provides an architecture or framework describing the user's data within a data environment. This architecture should provide a precise, coherent and logical structure that “paints a picture” of the data. It also should describe how the data internal to the data environment is interfaced to the external world. Satisfying the different needs of users and implementers, obtaining... View full abstract»

  • What's the deal with “e-business”?

    E-business is re-shaping the information technology infrastructure of many companies. While the definition varies depending on whom you talk to, it is usually something like IBM's definition: the transformation of key business processes through the use of Internet technologies. On the surface, this definition sounds like what we've been doing all along with information technology. However, this tr... View full abstract»

  • Analyzing Web-based simulation data

    The article deals only with simulation models that have stochastic, or random input. Classical statistical methods for independent observations assume that each observation carries the maximum information, and therefore they compute the smallest confidence interval. Since stationary simulation output data carries less information, the confidence interval resulting from applying classical statistic... View full abstract»

    Electronic commerce (E-commerce) is all the rage these days. About 100 million users and at least one million businesses already reachable via the Internet have made it that way. This critical mass compares to the market economy of North America, Japan or Europe. But doing business electronically means shifting critical business processes to open networks. It also means connecting back-end busines... View full abstract»

  • Taking cues from Java [discrete simulation]

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):11 - 15

    The article examines how discrete simulation and Java can light up the Web. Any programmer who is competent in Java will find that it is straightforward to develop a Java based discrete event simulation library useful for real work. However, the article only scratches the surface. Java has many other possibilities for extending discrete event simulation. For example, the in-built support can be pr... View full abstract»

  • Eddy current magnetic levitation. Models and experiments

    We present a simple demonstration of eddy-current magnetic levitation using a small copper coil, energized with 60 Hz AC and levitated over an aluminum plate. The processes that generate magnetic forces are identified using Maxwell's equations. Through this experiment, a method for determining lift-off power, levitation height and suspension resonant frequency is shown. The principles outlined in ... View full abstract»

    Placing bets on one technology over another is risky; however, there are some guiding lights. The Web is here to stay. It offers a way of sharing and presenting multimedia information to a worldwide set of interactive participants. Therefore, any technology tied to the Web's development is likely to change modeling and simulation. The tremendous interest in Java for doing simulation has taken a fi... View full abstract»
