  abstract= "Simulation plays an important role in the design process for
     modern digital and analogue systems. There are many
     different types of simulators capable of representing the
     behaviour of the system at a number of different levels of
     abstraction. Because of its vital importance there is an
     ever increasing need to enhance the performance of
     simulators. Enhancements can occur in many different
     aspects. These may be in the speed of simulation, or in the
     accuracy of modelling. This paper describes a relatively new
     enhancement that of incremental operation which has the
     advantage of allowing the simulator to respond very rapidly
     to design changes in addition to providing an enhanced rate
     of simulation.The simulator which is described in this paper
     operates at the behavioural level. This allows the designer
     to specify, using suitable code segments descriptions of the
     behaviour of the functional blocks which make up the design.
     This approach may be used to model a digital system at the
     gate level, where signal values correspond to standard logic
     levels. In addition this mode of simulation has the
     attraction of being able to model very complex blocks which
     might very well have inputs and outputs which are most
     conveniently represented by complex data structures. This
     simulator is able therefore to model a complete system, some
     parts represented at this nigh-level of abstraction whilst
     other parts may be modelled at the lower levels of
     abstraction where greater detail is required."
