Accuracy of models
2009 (English)In: Scientific Modeling and Simulations, Springer Netherlands, 2009, 41-57 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The ability of a mathematical model to accurately describe a phenomenon depends on how well the model incorporates all relevant aspects, how robust the model is with respect to its mathematical form, and with respect to the numerical values of input parameters. Some models are primarily intended to reproduce known data. In other cases the purpose is to make a prediction outside the range of knowledge, or to establish details in a physical mechanism. These aspects of modelling are discussed, with examples mainly taken from the field of materials science.
