- Simulation language
A computer

**simulation language**describes the operation of asimulation on a computer. There are two major types of simulation: continuous and discrete event though more modern languages can handle combinations. Most languages also have a graphical interface and at least simple statistical gathering capability for the analysis of the results. An important part of discrete-event languages is the ability to generate pseudo-random numbers and variates from differentprobability distribution s. Examples are:*

Discrete event simulation languages, viewing the model as a sequence of random events each causing a change in state.
