A Universal Mathematical Law Criterion for Algorithmic Validity

John R. Dickinson


That simulation game algorithms behave validly is an obviously essential property underlying the effectiveness of simulations. While algorithmic validation does have a philosophical tradition, relatively few empirical validation studies have actually been undertaken. This study positions a mathematical law based in digital analysis as a viable criterion for simulation game algorithm validation and, by application, establishes the validity of a popular marketing management simulation game against that criterion.
