Any good research, books, articles, etc. on the field of simulation?


Very interested in learning more about the field of simulation, distributed computing, etc. I’m extremely fascinated by simulations that can model real world problems, so I’d appreciate any research to better familiarize myself with the space.



This is a great lecture (transcribed) that explains the motivations for creating virtual models of the real world:


Mirror Worlds: Or the Day Software Puts the Universe in a Shoebox - How It Will Happen and What It Will Mean, David Gelernter. - an old but (because of that) good read on the general class of problems that massive virtual worlds can deal with.
