Chapter 8. Postprocessing

In this chapter we briefly introduce the important topic of postprocessing. As discussed previously, the role of the postprocessor is to manipulate the data created by the simulation into a useful form. Postprocessors are usually graphics intensive, since visual displays are more easily interpreted than numerical listings, which are the most common data output from a simulation program. For example, a plot of the bit error rate for several different systems conveys information more quickly than a numerical table containing the same information.

Postprocessing routines may, or may not, involve significant computational complexity. Some postprocessors simply take data created by a simulation and, after properly formatting ...
