The objective of this chapter is to present a brief — by no means complete — overview of different model types and paradigms. It is certainly not the goal to give a thorough account of all types of mathematical models and their solution procedures. That would by itself fill several volumes. I shall present only certain model types and approaches that from my point of view seem important — especially in the light of the ongoing vast unification in mathematical modeling that is taking place at different levels today.
