A SIMULATION MODEL FOR ANALYZING PERFORMANCE OF SOME SIMPLE COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS ON A DIGITAL COMPUTER

A digital-computer simulation model for analyzing performances of some simple communication systems is being developed for the purpose of studying the effects of interfering signals, noise, and/or distortions on various communication systems. Development of the model is largely based on the analogy with the laboratory tests of communication system performances. The model consists of computer subprograms, each of which either simulates a basic component of communication systems or calculates characteristics of a component. An introductory explanation of computer simulation, guidelines for developing a simulation model, an outline of the model, and some example programs are presented. Complete Fortran listings and a user manual are also presented.
