Abstract

Usually a (dynamic or non dynamic) model1 is formulated to understand, simulate, manage, forecast the behavior of a system or phenomena of different kinds (i.e. physical, biological, chemical, social). The models are formulated on the basis of theoretical assumptions, for instance suitable to be used to produce software models and mathematical descriptions.
