Book

Levent Yilmaz, professor in Auburn University’s Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, is preparing for the publication of two written works exploring modeling and simulation.

His work editing a new, comprehensive text titled “Concepts and Methodologies for Modeling and Simulation: A Tribute to Tuncer Ören,” will be available in May. The publication explores cutting-edge advances in the theory and methodology of computer simulation. It also presents higher-order synergies between simulation modeling, systems engineering, and intelligent agents to address the complexity of applied grand challenges.

Yilmaz has also been working to co-author a book, which will be published as part of the Simulation Foundations, Methods and Application series at the end of this year. “Distributed Simulation: A Model-Driven Engineering Approach,” provides a unique frame of reference in presenting the principles, concepts and development processes of distributed simulation – a concept of on-demand, immersive simulation – from the point of view of the model-driven engineering perspective, which is a software development methodology that focuses on creating and exploiting domain models.
