Abstract : This bibliography lists thirty-one technical reports. The principal topics covered in this research were condition limit theorems for Markov chains, variance reduction techniques for Markov chains, simulation of response times in networks of queues, simulation of generalized semi-Markov processes and general state space Markov chains, asymptotic theory for nonparametric confidence intervals, and autoregressive method for simulation output analysis, simulation of non-Markovian systems, and simulation output analysis for local area computer networks. Toward the end of this period research began on the development of algorithms to optimize systems parameters for simulation. An approach using smoothing splines has been developed.
