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.

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.

Dynamic modelling means modelling processes or systems, which are formed by attributes changing over time. Vehicles transmission and engines, reconfigurable microchips, earthquakes and the effect of diseases in organisms are presented in this book.

Presents new modelling and analysis techniques for the description of discrete event dynamic systems. Created within the text is a calculus which allows the derivation of analytical tools for computing the time behavior of this type of system.

This volume presents the problem of providing a surrogate or synthetic human for designers and engineers. The book is intended for engineers interested in understanding how a computer surrogate human can augment their analyses of designed environments.
