A "discrete system" simulation is one which admits a discrete-event model that can run be in discrete steps that match the structure of the model. (For simulation of continuous systems see COSC 3418.03)
Examples of discrete systems studied by simulation include games and other dynamic systems involving small populations where it is feasible to model individual's behaviour. Major sub-topics include the generation and use of random numbers, queuing systems, and the visual presentation of behaviour.
