Computer-Assisted Simulation of Dynamic Systems with Block Diagram Languages explores the diverse applications of these indispensable simulation tools. The first book of its kind, it bridges the gap between block diagram languages and traditional simulation practice by linking the art of analog/hybrid computation with modern pc-based technology. Direct analogies are explored as a means of promoting interdisciplinary problem solving. The reader progresses step-by-step through the creative modeling and simulation of dynamic systems from disciplines as diverse from each other as biology, electronics, physics, and mathematics. The book guides the reader to the dynamic simulation of chaos, conformal mapping, VTOL aircraft, and other highly specialized topics. Alternate methods of simulating a single device to emphasize the dynamic rather than schematic features of a system are provided. Nearly-forgotten computational techniques like that of integrating with respect to a variable other than time are revived and applied to simulation and signal processing. Actual working models are found throughout this eminently readable book, along with a complete international bibliography for individuals researching subjects in dynamic systems. This is an excellent primary text for undergraduate and graduate courses in computer simulation or an adjunct text for a dynamic systems course. It is also recommended as a professional reference book.
