a computer-generated simulation of an object or process in the real world. For instance, architects make computer models of houses to analyze how different designs would look; climatologists create computer models of global warming to analyze its effects around the world.
A series of mathematical formulas that a computer uses to analyze information rapidly. Computer models are used to estimate what has happened or predict what might happen in the real world.
predicted outcome made by using a computer to calculate mathematical equations used estimate patterns such as weather or wind direction
