Three pages of handwritten notes, front and back. Closed book. 120 minutes.
1. SIMLIB. True or false. (2 points each. If you wish, write an explanation of your thinking.)
(a)
T
F
The time of the next event and the type of the next event are stored as
"attributes" in a "list".
(b) T
F The average size, over time, of every list is collected automatically.
(c) T
F The average size of a list is an observational statistic, maintained through the
routine "sampst".
(d) T
F The variance of the size of a list is a timebased statistic.
(e)
T
F
When simulating a system using SIMLIB, the state cannot change
continuously through time.
(f) T
F When simulating a system using SIMLIB, the nextevent list is ordered based
on the scheduled time of the event.
(g) T
F When simulating a system using SIMLIB, the "main" routine is user written.
(h) T
F When simulating a system using SIMLIB, reducing variance by using control
variates is not possible.
(i)
T
F
When simulating a system using SIMLIB, reducing variance by using
antithetic variates is not possible.
(j) T
F When simulating a system using SIMLIB, an "arrival" event must always be
scheduled to occur at time zero.
(k)
T
F In SIMLIB, every event occurs at a point in time, not over an interval of
time.
