Yilmaz prepares for publication of modeling and simulation books

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.
