'This ambitious and well-written book is an excellent comprehensive review of what you need to know to evaluate or build a complex model or simulation of a physical process … would be a good textbook for a senior-level engineering or physics undergraduate semester course, particularly a project-based one that develops requirements for a simple prototype numerical model of a system.' Joan Horvath, Computing Reviews
'This book provides a comprehensive and systematic development of basic concepts and procedures for verification and validation of models and simulations.' Zentralblatt MATH
Advances in scientific computing have made modelling and simulation an important part of the decision-making process in engineering, science, and public policy. This book provides a framework for assessing its reliability and addresses inherent uncertainties, numerical approximation errors, and modeling errors.
