Additional triggers for this tutorial are advances in rare event simulation for this model class as well as the recent standard IEC for dependability evaluation with Petri nets. New results in performability evaluation using an integration of simulation and numerical analysis are presented. Importance-sampling is a commonly used simulation technique for the fast estimation of rare-event probabilities. It involves simulating the Markov chain under a new probability measure that emphasizes the most likely paths to the rare by:

From the reviews: "On the whole, Introduction to Rare Event Simulation succeeds at its stated goal, providing a good overview of importance sampling from the perspective of large deviations."Journal of the American Statistical Association, September "The main purpose of this book is to present a unified theory of rare event simulation and the variance reduction technique known as Brand: Springer-Verlag New York.

This book presents a unified theory of rare event simulation and the variance reduction technique known as importance sampling from the point of view of the probabilistic theory of large deviations. This perspective allows us to view a vast assortment of simulation problems from a unified single perspective.

It allows us to view a vast assortment of simulation problems from a unified single perspective. This book is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the cross-entropy (CE) method. The CE method started life around when the first author proposed an adaptive algorithm for rare-event simulation using a cross-entropy minimization technique.

For rare events, by deﬁnition it will be impossible to validate any model that seeks to produce speciﬁc point predictions of a rare event. This is because by “rare event” we are talking about any event that hasn’t happened yet and will only happen once. Even if we had a correct model, we won’tFile Size: 3MB.
