Characterizing Models

  • Tibor Müller
  • Harmund Müller


The examples in Chap. 1 show that models are images constructed in many different ways and that they are developed to serve various purposes. In Chap. 2 we have given a more detailed definition of the structures involved in the process of modelling. We have described them as systems, and we have concentrated on the dynamic and open systems as most relevant to modelling. In the preceding chapter we have finally studied the fine-structure of modelling processes as well as those of the modelled entities and the models themselves more closely.
