Simulation is applied to exhibit the extent of how the offered valuable
functionalities of given issues are appreciated. A systematic glossary of about twenty
types of intelligence provides a synoptic background for intelligent behavior that can
be represented by agents. The three categories of the synergy of simulation and
software agents are discussed in the following three sections: agent simulation, agentsupported
simulation, and agent-monitored simulation. Extensive bibliographic
analysis which is based on about 440 references supports each category of the synergy
of simulation and software agents. Discussion of some desirable research directions
and a conclusion section terminate the article.
