The increased computational power and software tools available to engineers have increased the use and dependence on modeling and computer simulation throughout the design process. These tools have given engineers the capability of designing highly complex systems and computer architectures that were previously unthinkable. Every complex design project, from integrated circuits, to aerospace vehicles, to industrial manufacturing processes requires these new methods. This book fulfills the essential need of system and control engineers at all levels in understanding modeling and simulation. This book, written as a true text/reference has become a standard sr./graduate level course in all EE departments worldwide and all professionals in this area are required to update their skills. The book provides a rigorous mathematical foundation for modeling and computer simulation. It provides a comprehensive framework for modeling and simulation integrating the various simulation approaches. It covers model formulation, simulation model execution, and the model building process with its key activities model abstraction and model simplification, as well as the organization of model libraries. Emphasis of the book is in particular in integrating discrete event and continuous modeling approaches as well as a new approach for discrete event simulation of continuous processes. The book also discusses simulation execution on parallel and distributed machines and concepts for simulation model realization based on the High Level Architecture (HLA) standard of the Department of Defense. Presents a working foundation necessary for compliance with High Level Architecture (HLA) standards Provides a comprehensive framework for continuous and discrete event modeling and simulation Explores the mathematical foundation of simulation modeling Discusses system morphisms for model abstraction and simplification Presents a new approach to discrete event simulation of continuous processes Includes parallel and distributed simulation of discrete event models Presents a concept to achieve simulator interoperability in the form of the DEVS-Bus

This book constitutes the proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Business Process Management, BPM 2017, held in Barcelona, Spain, in September 2017.The 19 revised full papers papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 116 initial submissions. The topics selected by the authors demonstrate an increasing interest of the research community in the area of process mining, resonated by an equally fast-growing uptake by different industry sectors. The papers are organized in topical sections on process modeling; process mining; assorted BPM topics; decisions and understanding; and process knowledge.

In multi-agent-based simulation (MABS) the behavior of individual actors is modeled in detail. The analysis and validation of these models is rated as difficult and requires support by innovative techniques and tools. Problems include model complexity, the amount and often qualitative representation of simulation results, and the typical dichotomy between microscopic modeling and macroscopic observation perspectives. In recent years, data mining has been increasingly applied as a support technique in this context. A particularly promising approach is found in the field of process mining. Due to its rooting in business process analysis, process mining shares several process- and organization-oriented analysis perspectives and use cases with agent-based modeling. This thesis proposes a conceptual framework for the systematic application of process mining to the analysis and validation of MABS. As a foundation, agent-oriented analysis perspectives and simulation-specific use cases are identified and complemented with methods, techniques, and results from the literature. A partial formalization of perspectives and use cases is sketched by utilizing concepts from process modeling and software engineering. Beyond the conceptual work, process mining is applied in two case studies related to different modeling and simulation approaches.

The all pervasive web is influencing all aspects of human endeavour. In order to strengthen the description of web resources, so that they are more meaningful to both humans and machines, web semantics have been proposed. These allow better annotation, understanding, search, interpretation and composition of these - sources. The growing importance of these has brought about a great increase in research into these issues. We propose a series of books that will address key issues in web semantics on an annual basis. This book series can be considered as an extended journal published annually. The series will combine theoretical results, standards, and their realizations in applications and implementations. The series is titled “Advances in Web Sem- tics” and will be published periodically by Springer to promote emerging Semantic Web technologies. It will contain the cream of the collective contribution of the Int- national Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Web Semantics Working Group; WG 2. 12 & WG 12. 4. This book, addressing the current state of the art, is the first in the series. In subsequent years, books will address a particular theme, topic or issue where the greatest advances are being made. Examples of such topics include: (i) process semantics, (ii) web services, (iii) ontologies, (iv) workflows, (v) trust and reputation, (vi) web applications, etc. Periodically, perhaps every five years, there will be a scene-setting state of the art volume.

Many novel application scenarios and architectures in business process management or service composition are characterized by a distribution of activities and resources, and by complex interaction and coordination dynamics. In this book, Montali answers fundamental questions on open and declarative modeling abstractions via the integration and extension of quite diverse approaches into a computational logic-based comprehensive framework. This framework allows non IT experts to graphically specify interaction models that are then automatically transformed into a corresponding formal representation and a set of fully automated sound and complete verification facilities. The book constitutes a revised and extended version of the author’s PhD thesis, which was honored with the 2009 “Marco Cadoli” prize, awarded by the Italian Association for Logic Programming for the most outstanding thesis focusing on computational logic, discussed between the years 2007 and 2009.
