Complex systems models: engineering simulations

Polack, Fiona A.C. and Hoverd, Tim and Sampson, Adam T. and Stepney, Susan and Timmis, Jon (2008) Complex systems models: engineering simulations. In: Bullock, S. and Noble, J. and Watson, R. and Bedau, Mark A., eds. Proceedings of the Eleventh International Conference on the Simulation and Synthesis of Living Systems (ALIFE XI).

As part of research towards the CoSMoS unified infrastructure for modelling and simulating complex systems, we review uses of definitional and descriptive models in natural science and computing, and existing integrated platforms. From these, we identify requirements for engineering models of complex systems, and consider how some of the requirements could be met, using state-of-the-art model management and a mobile, process-oriented computing paradigm.
