  A tool for xMAS-based modeling and analysis of communication fabrics in Simulink
Zhao X., Lu Z.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 27(3): 1-26, 2017. Type: Article

Because of the programmability challenge of timing-based hardware description languages (HDL) involving Verilog and VHDL, today many higher-level design languages and tools have been presented in academy and industry, in order to construct a digit...

  Space-time matching algorithms for interest management in distributed virtual environments
Liu E., Theodoropoulos G.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 24(3): Article No. 15, 2014. Type: Article

The scalability of distributed virtual environments (DVEs) requires an approach for filtering and disseminating relevant data to participating members. How should an algorithm be designed for coping with sporadic interest matching, hasty entity mo...

  Modeling BitTorrent-like systems with many classes of users
Liao W., Papadopoulos F., Psounis K., Psomas C.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 23(2): 1-25, 2013. Type: Article

Large-scale distributions of digital content over the Internet require effective algorithms and systems. The traditional BitTorrent model has been successful in the distribution of files on peer-to-peer (P2P) systems for homogeneous users [1,2]. B...

  Limit theorems for simulation-based optimization via random search
Chia Y., Glynn P.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 23(3): 1-18, 2013. Type: Article

It is important to know if a random search for an optimal solution converges or not. Furthermore, if it does converge, then it is important to be able to determine the rate of convergence and the distribution....

  Characterizing per-application network traffic using entropy
Petkov V., Rajagopal R., Obraczka K.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 23(2): 1-25, 2013. Type: Article

Several emerging algorithms for data mining, modeling, and simulation offer support for the visualization of business data and information. Business applications with intensive computational needs require the efficient use of bandwidth to effectiv...

  Small variance estimators for rare event probabilities
Broniatowski M., Caron V.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 23(1): 1-23, 2013. Type: Article

This paper talks about improving the sampling estimators in simulation results and catching rare events. Quite interesting discussions of Gaussian samples and approximation validation are also included. In most typical simulation works, modelers d...

  Bayesian learning of noisy Markov decision processes
Singh S., Chopin N., Whiteley N.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 23(1): 1-25, 2013. Type: Article

Statistical models are not perfect, but they do help us estimate unknown complex models using fewer parameters. This paper deals with a statistical model fitted to observed actions that originate with a Markov decision process. A new Markov chain ...

  Posterior expectation of regularly paved random histograms
Sainudiin R., Teng G., Harlow J., Lee D.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 23(1): 1-20, 2013. Type: Article

Parametric and nonparametric supervised machine learning algorithms are useful in artificial intelligence (AI). The literature of the field includes illustrations of decision-tree-based classifiers for hyperplanes, higher-order dimensional grammar...

  Massive parallelization of serial inference algorithms for a complex generalized linear model
Suchard M., Simpson S., Zorych I., Ryan P., Madigan D.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 23(1): 1-17, 2013. Type: Article

Computers with multicore central processing units (CPUs) and multiple graphics processing units (GPUs) exist today to speed up the parallel processing of computationally intensive statistical prediction algorithms. Unfortunately, several of the ex...

  Incorporating household structure into a discrete-event simulation model of tuberculosis and HIV
Mellor G., Currie C., Corbett E.  ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 21(4): 1-17, 2011. Type: Article

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is known to increase the probability of developing tuberculosis (TB) and accelerating its progression. During the last 20 years, as a result of the rise in the number of HIV infections, the number of TB cases has...
