An introduction to modeling science: Basic model types, key definitions, and a general framework for the comparison of process models

Abstract

A model is a systematic description of an object or phenomenon that shares important characteristics with its real-world counterpart and supports its detailed investigation. Models are commonly represented as a system of postulates, data, and inferences presented visually, in material form, in mathematical terms, or as a computer simulation. They are often… (More)
