Description
 
John L. Casti (au). Out of the bits & bytes of computer memory, researchers are fashioning silicon surrogates of the real world -- elaborate “artificial worlds” -- that allow them to perform experiments that are too impractical, too costly, or, too dangerous to do “in the flesh.” These laboratories of the future are the essential tools of a controversial new scientific method. This new science is the science of simulation. This book takes the reader on an excursion through a number of remarkable silicon microworlds & shows us how they are being used to formulate important new theories & to solve a host of practical problems. Color & B&W illustrations.
