Reconstructing Reality: Models, Mathematics, and Simulations

Oup Usa (2015)

Authors

Abstract
The book examines issues related to the way modeling and simulation enable us to reconstruct aspects of the world we are investigating. It also investigates the processes by which we extract concrete knowledge from those reconstructions and how that knowledge is legitimated.
