Course Catalogue Description

Basic introduction to simulation concepts, generation of random variants from distributions, test for randomness, Monte Carlo Simulation, selecting input distribution, discrete event simulation, variance reduction techniques, statistical analysis of output.

Course Objectives

The objective of this course is to introduce students an experimental problem solving methodology, which is extensively utilized when the problem to be solved is too complex or does not have any analytical solution.

Course Learning Outcomes

Students taking this course will be equipped with the use of the tools and techniques of statistical simulation to be able to solve especially complex real-world problems.

Tentative (Weekly) Outline

Basic introduction to simulation concepts, generation of random variants from distributions, test for randomness, Monte Carlo Simulation, selecting input distribution, discrete event simulation, variance reduction techniques, statistical analysis of output.
