A mathematical model is a description of a system using mathematical concepts and language. The process of developing a mathematical model is termed mathematical modeling. Mathematical models are used not only in the natural sciences (such as physics, biology, earth science, meteorology) and engineering disciplines (e.g., computer science, artificial intelligence), but also in the social sciences (such as economics, psychology, sociology, and political science); physicists, engineers, statisticians, operations research analysts, and economists use mathematical models most extensively. A model may help to explain a system and to study the effects of different components, and to make predictions about behavior.
A description of a system using mathematical concepts and language.
In Operations Research, a mathematical model involves a set of mathematical relationships (such as equations, inequalities and logical dependencies) that correspond to some more down to earth relationships in real world ( Williams (2013) ).
A mathematical model is a model built using the language and tools of mathematics. A mathematical model is often constructed with the aim to provide predictions on the future ‘state’ of a phenomenon or a system.
It is a description of a system using mathematical concepts and language. A model may help to explain a system and to study the effects of different components, and to make predictions about behavior.
An abstract mathematical representation of a process, device, or concept; it uses a number of variables to represent inputs, outputs and internal states, and sets of equations and inequalities to describe their interaction.
A set of equations, usually ordinary differential equations, the solution of which gives the time course behaviour of a dynamical system. The set of equations for example 1 is an example of a mathematical model.
An abstract model using equations to describe the behaviour of a system (biological, physical, …).
Mathematical description of a physical system. In the framework of this work mathematical models pursue the descriptions of mechanisms underlying stuttering, putting emphasis in the dynamics of neuronal regions involved in the disorder.
Mathematical model is an abstract model that describes a problem, environment, or system using a mathematical language.
They are a set of mathematical equations that explain the behaviour of the system under various operating conditions, and determine the dominant factors that govern the rules of the process. Mathematical modeling is also associated with data collection, data interpretation, parameter estimation, optimization, and provide tools for identifying possible approaches to control and for assessing the potential impact of different intervention measures.
A mathematical model is an abstract model that uses mathematical language to describe the behavior of a system.
Is a description of a system using mathematical concepts and language. The process of developing a mathematical model is termed mathematical modelling. Mathematical models can take many forms, including but not limited to dynamical systems, statistical models, differential equations, or game theoretic models. A model may help to explain a system and to study the effects of different components, and to make predictions about behaviour.
Mathematical description of the relationship between process parameters.
Defining systems using mathematical concept.
