The Nature of Code: Simulating Natural Systems with Processing
by Daniel Shiffman
Publisher: The Nature of Code 2012
Number of pages: 520
This book focuses on a range of programming strategies and techniques behind computer simulations of natural systems, from elementary concepts in mathematics and physics to more advanced algorithms that enable sophisticated visual results. Readers will progress from building a basic physics engine to creating intelligent moving objects and complex systems, setting the foundation for further experiments in generative design.

This book collects research studies concerning modeling and simulation of physical systems in a very wide range of applications: micro-electro-mechanical systems, measurement instrumentations, catalytic reactors, biomechanical applications, etc.
by Shkelzen Cakaj - InTech
Topics covered: parametric representation of shapes, modeling of dynamic continuous fluid flow process, plant layout optimal plot plan, atmospheric modeling, cellular automata simulations, thyristor switching characteristics simulation, etc.
by A.I. Zhmakin - arXiv
Simulation of human motion is the subject of study in a number of disciplines: Biomechanics, Robotics, Control Theory, Neurophysiology, Ergonomics. Since the author has never visited any of these fields, this review is a passer-by's impression.
by Harry Perros - NC State University
The generation of pseudo-random numbers, the generation of stochastic variates, simulation designs, estimation techniques for analyzing endogenously created data, validation of a simulation model, variance reduction techniques, etc.
