    Simulation software Simulation software is based on the process of modeling a real phenomenon with a set of mathematical formulas. It is, essentially, a program that allows the user to observe an operation through simulation without actually performing that operation. Simulation software is used widely to design equipment so that the final product will be as close to design specs as possible without expensive in process modification. Simulation software with real-time response is often used in gaming…

    Statistical Preliminary 1. Measure of central tendency and dispersion Mean of a group of number is the average value of these numbers. Median is the number that is in the middle when you order these numbers in ascending order. It is probably immediate to you that the order doesn’t have to be ascending. A tricky question is what the median is when the total number of the numbers is even. In that case, you just take the average of the two numbers that are in the middle. For example, suppose…

    Molecular modelling is the general term used to describe the use of computers to construct molecules and perform a variety of calculations on these molecules in order to predict their chemical characteristics and behaviour. The term molecular modelling is often used synonymously with the term computational chemistry. Computational chemistry is a broader term, referring to any use of computers to study chemical systems. Some chemists use the term computational quantum chemistry to refer to the use…
