The concept of strong groups is introduced to describe the structure of simulation models. It is shown that logical processes within strong groups process at approximately the same rate and that different strong groups can progress at different rates. An algorithm based on the rates of the strong groups is presented to balance the load among the physical processors and for flow control.
Parallel simulation, optimistic protocols, simulation model structure, load balancing, flow control.
