Mathematical Modeling and Computer Simulation
Once upon a time, man started to use models in his practical activity. Modeling continues to play a very important role in studying natural phenomena and processes as well as helping to create modern engineering systems. Additionally, modeling is used in biology and medicine to find the mechanisms of function and malfunction concerning the organs of living organisms at both the micro and macro level.
Generally, a model has been defined  as the reconstruction of something found or created in the real world, a simplified representation of a more complex form, process, or idea, which may enhance understanding and facilitate prediction. The object of the model is called the original, or prototype system.
