Roy is Associate Professor in the Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering at Virginia Tech University.


'This ambitious and well-written book is an excellent comprehensive review of what you need to know to evaluate or build a complex model or simulation of a physical process … would be a good textbook for a senior-level engineering or physics undergraduate semester course, particularly a project-based one that develops requirements for a simple prototype numerical model of a system.' Joan Horvath, Computing Reviews

'This book provides a comprehensive and systematic development of basic concepts and procedures for verification and validation of models and simulations.' Zentralblatt MATH
