First time poster here - I am a self taught Java rookie. I study Statistics and Operations Research and want to be able to use Java to create my own, custom simulations and modelling software.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a good book, article, tutorial or simple code where I can begin to familiarize myself with simulating in Java? My initial efforts on google led me to the Java Simulation Handbook which uses the DESMO-J toolset for Java:
The Java Simulation Handbook
but I cannot find any reviews and am not sure if its worth reading/the money.
Thank you in advance!
