Statistical Simulation

Simulation is used before an existing system is altered or a new system built, to reduce the chances of failure to meet specifications, to eliminate unforeseen bottlenecks, to prevent under or over-utilization of resources and to optimize system performance. Models are simulated versions/results.
Simulation depends on unknown (or external/ impositions/ factors) parameters and statistical tools depends on estimates.

  • Simulation follows finite sample properties (have to specify n)
  • Reasoning of statistical simulation can’t be proofed mathematically)
  • Simulation is used to illustrate the things.
  • Simulation is used to check the validity of methods.
  • Simulation is a technique of representing the real world via computer program.
  • Simulation is act of initiating the behavior of some situation or some process by means of something suitably analogous. (especially for the purpose of study or some personal training)
  • A simulation is representation of something (usually in smaller scale).
  • Simulation is the art of giving false/artificial appearance.

Issues of simulations

  • What distribution do the random variable have
  • How do we generate these random variables for simulation
  • How do we analyze the output of simulations
  • How many simulation runs do we need
  • How do we improve the efficiency of simulation?
