Computational methods in real-time simulation and control are in general not well understood by scientists and engineers, even when they have had extensive experience in non-real-time simulation. In particular, many of the methods used to control dynamic errors and stability in traditional simulation are just not applicable in the real-time case. A vast array of simulation and control tools and other technology have been developed over the past decades that help abstract the complexity of real-time. However, without a deep understanding of the first principles nature of this technology the real-time engineer can fall into many traps. This book is made available to help anyone strengthen their knowledge of the dynamics of real-time and help us all develop better solutions as the world of complex systems becomes increasingly complex.
