simulation

 [sim″u-la´shun]
1. the act of counterfeiting a disease; malingering.
2. the imitation of one disease by another.

sim·u·la·tion

(sim'yū-lā'shŭn), Do not confuse this word with stimulation.
1. Imitation; said of a disease or symptom that resembles another, or of the feigning of illness as in factitious illness or malingering.
2. In radiation therapy, use of a geometrically similar radiographic system or computer to plan the location of therapy ports.
[L. simulatio, fr. simulo, pp. -atus, to imitate, fr. similis, like]

simulation

[sim′yəlā′shən]
Etymology: L, simulare, to imitate
a method of representing the actions of one system by those of another, as a computer program that represents the actions of something in the real world. Simulation enables a computer to explore situations that might be too expensive, dangerous, or time-consuming in real life.

simulation

Medspeak
The controlled representation of dynamic phenomena, which is used when real world data are either unavailable or performing the actual process is undesirable. Simulations are based on observing other system functions, or by assessing a hypothetical system created from existing data.

simulation,

n a mode of computer-assisted instruction in which a student receives basic information about a topic and then must interact with the computer to gain deeper understanding of the information and topic. It provides the student with the opportunity to gain experience at limited cost and with reduced risk.

simulation

1. imitation of a system such as an ecological or farming system by a series of mathematical formulae.
2. the act of running a model.
3. the imitation of one disease by another.

simulation model
mathematical models of dynamic processes which include combinations of mathematical and logical processes. They are generally used to compare several solutions to a problem.
