  Institute for Simulation and Training at the University of Central Florida
The region boasts the highest concentration of simulation and training related activities in the nation.
This is the granddaddy of all simulation and training conventions and trade shows and once again we're pleased to join with the Florida High Tech Corridor Council, Metropolitan Orlando Economic Development Commission, Daytona Beach Community College and others to showcase central Florida.
Simulations should begin within six months with first results coming at the end of 2007.

  Simulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Simulation is used in many contexts, including the modeling of natural systems or human systems in order to gain insight into their functioning.
Interactive simulation, which is a special kind of physical simulation, and often referred to as human in the loop simulations, are physical simulations that include humans, such as the model used in a flight simulator.
Simulation is often used in the training of civilian and military personnel.

 Simulation game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A simulation game, or sim game, (also known as a game of status or mixed game) is a game that contains a mixture of skill, chance, and strategy to simulate an aspect of reality, such as a stock exchange.
Some simulation games are intended to simulate the real world; others are intended to simulate a fictional world; still others are designed to be able to do both.
Dating sims are meant to simulate a relationship or friendship.

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Simulation is used in many contexts, including the modeling of natural systems, and human systems to gain insight into the operation of those systems; and simulation in technology and safety engineering where the goal is to test some real-world practical scenario.
Computer simulation, has become a useful part of modeling many natural systems in physics, chemistry and biology, and human systems in economics and social science as well as in engineering to gain insight into the operation of those systems.
In computer science, simulation has an even more a specialized meaning: Turing uses the term "simulation" to refer to what happens when a digital computer runs a state transition table (runs a program) that describes the state transitions, inputs and outputs of a subject descrete-state machine.

 ModelBenders - Encyclopedia
Simulation is the process of designing a model of a real or imagined system and conducting experiments with that model.
Simulations are usually referred to as either discrete event or continuous, based on the manner in which the state variables change.
In practice, most simulations use both discrete and continuous state variables, but one of these is predominant and drives the classification of the entire simulation.

 Baudrillard_Simulacra and Simulations
The simulator cannot be treated objectively either as ill, or as not ill. Psychology and medicine stop at this point, before a thereafter undiscoverable truth of the illness.
Simulation is characterized by a precession of the model, of all models around the merest fact- the models come first, and their orbital (like the bomb) circulation constitutes the genuine magnetic field of events.
A simulation which can go on indefinitely, since -unlike "true" power which is, or was, a structure, a strategy, a relation of force, a stake - this is nothing but the object of a social demand, and hence subject to the law of supply and demand, rather than to violence and death.

 Are You Living in a Computer Simulation?
The simulation argument works equally well for those who think that it will take hundreds of thousands of years to reach a “posthuman” stage of civilization, where humankind has acquired most of the technological capabilities that one can currently show to be consistent with physical laws and with material and energy constraints.
As one approaches the limiting case in which everybody is in a simulation (from which one can deductively infer that one is in a simulation oneself), it is plausible to require that the credence one assigns to being in a simulation gradually approach the limiting case of complete certainty in a matching manner.
There is also the possibility of simulators abridging certain parts of the mental lives of simulated beings and giving them false memories of the sort of experiences that they would typically have had during the omitted interval.

 Folk Psychology as Mental Simulation (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
The simulation (or, "mental simulation") theory (ST) is a theory of everyday human psychological competence: that is, of the skills and resources people routinely call on in the anticipation, explanation, and social coordination of behavior.
According to Gordon's "radical" version of ST (1995), a capacity for simulation is necessary for the very capacity to perceive objects as mind-endowed (and thus for perceiving human beings as persons).
While no simulation theorist claims that all our everyday explanations and predictions of the actions of other people are based on role-taking, Heal in particular has been a moderating influence, arguing for a hybrid simulation-and-theory account that reserves simulation primarily for items with rationally linked content, such as beliefs, desires, and actions.

Simulations of social processes can be accomplished either by human player games or by computer programs or by a combination of the two.
Simulation is unobtrusive because it does not disturb the object of inquiry (except perhaps when an actor applies its results).
Inasmuch as all information provided by a simulation is already contained in the model, simulation is useful primarily when the model is no longer tractable by algebraical techniques.

 Simulation (jskl)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Simulation can contribute very much to understanding of the system being analyzed not only by supplying answers to the questions that were originally given.
Simulation on analogue computers is based on creating an analogue electronic system whose behavior is described by the same mathematical model (set of differential equations) as the system being investigated.
Discrete simulation deals with systems whose dynamics can be considered (due to the level of abstraction) as a sequence of events at discrete time points.

 Predicting an asteroid strike
The simulation is no video game; the calculations take into account the real-world laws of physics governing time, temperature, pressure, gravity, the densities of water and earth, and hundreds of other considerations to create an accurate prediction.
In the absence of real-world nuclear testing, DOE and the weapons labs are developing continually more powerful supercomputers and computer codes to simulate the complex 3-D physics involved in nuclear-weapon performance and to accurately predict the degradation of nuclear weapon components as they age in the stockpile.
According to the simulation, the impact would vaporize the asteroid, deform the ocean floor, and eject hundreds of cubic miles of superheated water vapor, melted rock, and other debris into the upper atmosphere and back into space.

 Modeling and Simulation
System Simulation is the mimicking of the operation of a real system, such as the day-to-day operation of a bank, or the value of a stock portfolio over a time period, or the running of an assembly line in a factory, or the staff assignment of a hospital or a security company, in a computer.
A flight simulator on a PC is also a computer model of some aspects of the flight: it shows on the screen the controls and what the "pilot" (the youngster who operates it) is supposed to see from the "cockpit" (his armchair).
Another strategy for estimating the gradient simulation is based on the frequency domain method, which differs from the time domain experiments in that the input parameters are deterministically varied in sinusoidal patterns during the simulation run, as opposed to being kept fixed as in the time domain runs.
