Research Topics

Possible topics of research projects in the area of quantitative discrete-event simulation, at PhD, Master and Honours level include:

  • New sequential estimators for automated output data analysis during MRIP (Multiple Replications in Parallel) simulation;
  • Comparative studies of sequential estimators of mean values during steady-state simulation;
  • Sequential estimators of quantiles during steady-state simulation;
  • Sequentatial quantitative simulation of rare events;
  • MRIP simulation and Variance Reduction;
  • Sequential analysis of heavy-tailed data and/or data from self-similar processes during steady-state simulation;
  • Akaroa2 as an automated controller of distributed quantitative dscrete-event simulation;
  • PlanetLab NZ.
