Please note that participating in this course -- especially participating in the second part on the practical modeling and simulation of networks and protocols -- requires the ability and some experience in C++ coding. It also reuqires a computer where you can run the OMNeT++ simulator, which runs on most UNIX derivates, MacOS X and Windows.
Important announcements concering the lecture
If you are interested in announcements relevant to our teaching activities -- and especially on this lecture -- or any other of the DS group's activities, you're more than welcome on our ds-interest mailing list!
This course will focus on the Engineering of Communication Systems, especially on the analysis of communication systems by modeling and simulating networking protocols and the environment they are embedded (e.g., modeling and simulation of user behavior, network topologies, user mobility, signal propagation in wireless networks, etc.).
This lecture gives an introduction to simulation techniques. The focus of the course will be on discrete event simulation. Simulation is widely used to evaluate systems in generally and computer communication networks in particular. In this course we will emphasize the simulation of communicaton networks. Some topics of the course are:
- Model design
- Prepation of simulations
- Input modeling
- Random numbers and random variates
- Evaluation of simulation results
- Implementation of a discrete event simulator
