Basin modeling is a framework of adapted geological and physical models. An overall implementation contains a wide range of algorithms and methods each of them appropriate for each “submodel”. A detailed discussion of all approaches goes beyond the scope of this volume. Many algorithms are standard in other fields, such as statistics or computer science. In these cases additional information can be found in the cited literature. An excellent general overview over numerical methods is given by Press et al. (2002). Adapted or special algorithms of basin modeling, which are important for understanding and which are not too comprehensive, are outlined together with the fundamental theory in the previous chapters.
