Discrete Modeling & Simulation

July/August 2016

CiSE magazine cover

This special issue of CiSE magazine deals with the application of discrete modeling and simulation tools to problems from different fields, including physics, engineering, environment science, social science, and life sciences. Many of the authors highlighted here examine the computing abilities and principles of discrete models with a focus on their expressive dynamics, their emergent computation, and their inherent parallelism, making them suitable for high-performance computing. Such models can also successfully tackle the computational bottleneck in terms of the complexity inherent in so many mesh-based and analytical numerical simulations. Read full article »
