Books on DEVS M&S Theory and Framework

DEVS Systems-based Simulation is applicable to wide spectrum complex systems

Theoretical – supporting application

Closure under coupling, universality, uniqueness, relation to other formalisms

Hierarchical Model Construction supports complex system development

Supports the correctness of the algorithms and validation of the executing models, e.g., time management is rigorously defined

Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS) formalism extends beyond discrete-event world to continuous characteristics of system (Hybrid-DEVS)

In Application

Models, Simulators and Experimental Frames are distinct entities with their own software representations

Precise and well-defined mathematical representation

Models/Experiments are developed systematically for interoperability

Repositories of models/experiments created and maintained systematically

Components can be easily reused for constructing new models

Discrete-event basis improves performance (e.g. no need for a global clock to control timing)

DEVS software can be deployed on distributed computing environments and interact with heterogeneous M&S system.
