Types of Modeling & Simulation in Healthcare

What types of modeling & simulation does healthcare do? In other words: What M&S methodologies/disciplines are used? How is the represented part of the healthcare system modeled ? Providing this, perhaps with a one-liner example of each, will help understand the context and breadth of domains discus...

Re: Credibility and reproducibility

######## The Long story ######## First, Martin your definition of " computational analysis" is more inclusive than our limited context of simulation and modeling in Healthcare. And I do think it is reasonable to demand reproducibility to establish credibility. I do find reproducibility important to...
