None of the examples in this chapter need to be simulated; they can all be analyzed by mathematical/numerical analysis. But thinking about how to simulate them will help us understand what works, and why, for systems we do need to simulate. These examples also provide a test bed for evaluating new ideas in simulation design and analysis. You may have encountered these models in other classes, but it is neither necessary to have seen them before, nor to know how the results are derived, to use them throughout the book.
