We now take up the question of the reliability of a simulation. I can do no better than quote from the Summer Computer Simulation Conference of 1975, "Computer based simulation is now in wide spread use to analyze system models and evaluate theoretical solutions to observed problems. Since important decisions must relay on simulation, it is essential that its validity be tested, and that its advocates be able to describe the level of authentic representation which they achieved."
"The Art of Doing Science and Engineering: Learning to Learn" was the capstone course by Dr. Richard W. Hamming (1915-1998) for graduate students at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey California. This course is intended to instill a "style of thinking" that will enhance one's ability to function as a problem solver of complex technical issues. With respect, students sometimes called the course "Hamming on Hamming" because he relates many research collaborations, discoveries, inventions and achievements of his own. This collection of stories and carefully distilled insights relates how those discoveries came about. Most importantly, these presentations provide objective analysis about the thought processes and reasoning that took place as Dr. Hamming, his associates and other major thinkers, in computer science and electronics, progressed through the grand challenges of science and engineering in the twentieth century.
