Summary
"Discrete event systems (DES) have become pervasive in our daily life. Examples include (but are not restricted to) manufacturing and supply chains, transportation, healthcare, call centers, and financial engineering. However, due to their complexities that often involve millions or even billions of events with many variables and constraints, modeling of these stochastic simulations has long been a "hard nut to crack". The advance in available computer technology, especially of cluster and cloud computing, has paved the way for the realization of a number of stochastic simulation optimization for complex discrete event systems. This book will introduce two important techniques initially proposed and developed by Professor Y.C. Ho and his team; namely perturbation analysis and ordinal optimization for stochastic simulation optimization, and present the state-of-the-art technology, and their future research directions. Contents: Part I: Perturbation Analysis: IPA Calculus for Hybrid Systems; Smoothed Perturbation Analysis: A Retrospective and Prospective Look; Perturbation Analysis and Variance Reduction in Monte Carlo Simulation; Adjoints and Averaging; Infinitesimal Perturbation Analysis in On-Line Optimization; Simulation-based Optimization of Failure-Prone Continuous Flow Lines; Perturbation Analysis, Dynamic Programming, and Beyond; Part II: Ordinal Optimization : Fundamentals of Ordinal Optimization; Optimal Computing Budget Allocation; Nested Partitions; Applications of Ordinal Optimization. Readership: Professionals in industrial and systems engineering, graduate reference for probability & statistics, stochastic analysis and general computer science, and research."--
