Abstract: Time warp discrete event simulators take advantage of the parallel processing of simulation events. On the other hand, they suffer from the overhead required to enforce the causality relation. This overhead consists of the time for saving the states of logical processes, the time for the rollback procedures and the wasted simulation time, that is the time spent for the processing of events which are undone because of rollback. Two techniques have been developed for state saving: periodic and incremental. In th…
