Title An Interactive Continuous Simulation Language
Date 1968-10
Description Computer simulation has come into increasingly widespread use to study the behavior of systems of which the state of the system changes over time. There have been two main types of simulation languages developed to study these systems, continuous simulation languages to study continuous change models, and discrete simulation languages for the analysis of discrete change models. The models used for analysis with a continuous simulation language are usually represented mathematically by differential or difference equations that describe rates of change of the variables over time. ICSL (Interactive Continuous Simulation Language) falls into this category as a programming language. ICSL not only has the capability for approximating the solutions of continuous change models, but also provides for interaction between man and machine during the course of the simulation. This interaction is in the area of computer graphics. The paper describes in detail the information required for programming in ICSL. The language was implemented almost entirely in the FORTRAN language to give it an air of machine independence.,Personally Identifiable Information (PII) was redacted.
