Mathematical models of real processes cannot contemplate every aspect of reality. Simplifying assumptions have to be made, especially when the models are going to be used for control purposes, where models with simple structures (linear in most cases) and sufficiently small size have to be used due to available control techniques and real time considerations. Thus, mathematical models, and especially control models, can only describe the dynamics of the process in an approximative way.
