The Spectrum of Mathematical Models.
Karplus, Walter J.
Perspectives in Computing, v3 n2 p4-13 May 1983
Mathematical modeling problems encountered in many disciplines are discussed in terms of the modeling process and applications of models. The models are classified according to three types of abstraction: continuous-space-continuous-time, discrete-space-continuous-time, and discrete-space-discrete-time. Limitations in different kinds of modeling are also considered. (JN)
