mathematical modeling
Operational representation of a system in which the characteristics and behaviors of the component processes, phenomena, or objects, understood using mathematical relationships, are represented by numerical values (measured or hypothetical), so that calculations carried out using them return numerical estimates of system parameters that were not measured directly.
This category is also used for computational modeling, fractal geometric methods, groundwater flow modeling, modeling (mathematical), numerical methods, numerical modeling, statistical modeling, and with streamflow for streamflow modeling
