This paper demonstrates, both theoretically and by using numerical examples, that if one has good starting states, one should not use warm up periods in discrete event simulation when estimating equilibrium expectations by means of time averages. The numerical methods used are deterministic, and are based on randomization or uniformization. We also point out the main differences between deterministic and stochastic equilibria, and we show that there are hybrid systems, which require warm up periods.
