CURRICULUM VITAE

    Stanislaw  Raczynski received his master degree (1964) from the Academy of  Mining and Metallurgy (AGH, now called Techincal University of Krakow) in Krakow Poland, Electrical Engineering Department, his Ph.D. (1969) and Habilitation degree (1977)  from the same Academy,  in  the area of control theory and optimization methods.  In 1964 Dr.Raczynski joined the Institute for Automatics  and Industrial Electronics of the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy in Krakow. From 1971 through 1972, he was head of the Computer  Center of the AGH.  Between 1973 and 1976 he worked as a researcher in  the International Research Group in Moscow, USSR (located in the Institute for Control Problems of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR).  The  research  area  was operations research and computer simulation.  In 1976  Dr.Raczynski became head of  the  Systems  Analysis Group  at  the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy  in  Krakow.   From 1980 through  1983  he participated in the activities of the European Workshop on Industrial  Computer Systems. Between 1983 and 1986 he was a visiting professor of the National University of Mexico.  In 1986 Dr.Raczynski joined the Panamericana University in Mexico City, Engineering Department.  His didactic activities include courses on control theory, electronics and computer simulation. 
   Between
1996 and 2000 and then between 2002 and 2004 Dr. Raczynski was the International Director of The Society for Computer Simulation. In 2003-2004 he is the international co-director of the McLeod Institute for Simulation Sciences (part of The Society  for  Computer  Simulation in San Diego, California). Since 1996 he is a member of the National System of Researchers of Mexico. Between 1994 and 2003 Dr. Raczynski was the director of the Mexican Center of the McLeod Institute of Simulation Sciences. He wrote two books on computer simulation and has more than 70 articles and papers published in professional journals and conference proceedings.

PSM++ Simulation System

A versatile simulation package for Windows98, NT, XP or later

(new version of PASION)

PSM++ is an object-oriented, Pascal-related simulation language. The language has a clear process/event structure and is equipped with appropriate environment. PSM++ translator generates Pascal source code that can be run using a Pascal compiler (this new version generates code compatible with the Borland's Delphi 3 or 4). The following features make PSM++ the most complete and versatile simulation tool.

Object-oriented simulation offers great flexibility in model building. While coding directly in PSM++ language you can create complex models described in terms of processes and events, create the process instances (objects) and activate them.

The above figure shows a simple model of breaking the rack, where each ball is a model object and moves according to its own rules, receiving external forces from other objects, friction and the table limits. This is only one of possible PSM++ applications. The whole system can be used to simulate a great variety of systems, from physical ones to queuing models, manufacturing, automatic control and many others. See the PSM++ demo (can be downloaded from the complete version of this summary) for the simulation run (animation) of this model. Consult also the journal SIMULATION (November 1997, J. & S. McLeod, "Simulation in the Service of Society") for a PSM++ review. Implementation: the PSM++ system runs on the (minimum) IBM 32-bits, 100 Mhz PC machine with SVGA color monitor (16 or 24-bits color), 16 Mb RAM.

SOME USEFUL SIMULATION LINKS

Here you have some simulation links. First of all, note that the first one is a link to the Society for Computer Simulation Interational (SCS). This is the most important source of simulation knowledge and information about simulation journals and events (conferences, workshops etc.). There are also some pages of the McLeod Institute for Simulation Sciences (MISS, a part of the SCS), and other useful simulation links.
