Designed for students, researchers, and engineers familiar with basic programming concepts, this book gives a basic introduction to the concepts of modeling and simulation, the basics of object-oriented component-based modeling for the novice, and a comprehensive overview of modeling and simulation in a number of application areas. It provides a tutorial and reference for the Modelica 2.1 (including some anticipated extensions) complete with a comprehensive overview of application model libraries from many domains. Executable examples are included from many areas--physics, mechanics, electrical systems, thermodynamics, flow systems, computer science, concurrent and real-time processes, biology, ecology, chemistry, economy, etc.

Samples of executable models, teaching material, interactive tutorials, and recent book updates are available at the book's website,
