Simulation – Sheldon M. Ross – 4th Edition

Description

Ross’s ; Fourth Edition introduces aspiring and practicing actuaries; ; and others to the practical aspects of constructing computerized studies to analyze and interpret real phenomena. Readers learn to apply results of these analyses to in a wide variety of to obtain effective; accurate and make predictions about future outcomes.

This text explains how a computer can be used to generate random ; and how to use these random to generate the behavior of a stochastic over time. It presents the statistics needed to analyze simulated data as well as that needed for validating the simulation .
