You Are What You Tweet: Connecting the Geographic Variation in America’s Obesity Rate to Twitter Content
We conduct a detailed investigation of the relationship among the obesity rate of urban areas and expressions of happiness, diet and physical activity on social media. We do so by analyzing aExpand

Using simulation games for teaching and learning discrete-event simulation
Capturing and retaining the attention of students while learning complex topics like modeling and simulation is a critical task. In discrete-event simulation (DES), educators rely on examples likeExpand

Toward a formalism of modeling and simulation using model theory
This article proposes a Modeling and Simulation (M&S) formalism using Model Theory. The article departs from the premise that M&S is the science that studies the nature of truth using models andExpand
