Modeling for All Scales: An Introduction to System Simulation. by Howard T. Odum and Elisabeth C. After introducing modeling and its benefits, there is a series of chapters detailing the more particular elements of successful simulation. There follows another series of chapters, each devoted to models of different sorts of systems. Small scale models of growth, competition, and evolution give way, successively, to larger and larger scale models such as international trade and the global geobiosphere.

All manner of models are used to describe, simulate, extrapolate, and ultimately understand the function of dynamic systems

All manner of models are used to describe, simulate, extrapolate, and ultimately understand the function of dynamic systems. These sorts of models are usually based upon a mathematical foundation that can be difficult to manipulate especially for students. Modeling for All Scales uses object-oriented programming to erect and evaluate the efficacy of models of small, intermediate and large scale systems. Such models allow users to employ intuitively based symbols and a systems ecology approach.

All manner of models are used to describe, simulate, extrapolate, and ultimately understand the function of dynamic systems. These sorts of models are usually based upon a mathematical foundation that can be difficult to manipulate especially for students. Modeling for All Scales uses object-oriented programming to erect and evaluate the efficacy of models of small, intermediate and large scale systems. Such models allow users to employ intuitively based symbols and a systems ecology approach. The authors have been leaders in the systems ecology community and have originated much of the scientific vocabulary of the field. After introducing modeling and its benefits, there is a series of chapters detailing the more particular elements of successful simulation. There follows another series of chapters, each devoted to models of different sorts of systems. Small scale models of growth, competition, and evolution give way, successively, to larger and larger scale models such as international trade and the global geobiosphere. Anyone interested in an easy to use approach to modeling complex systems authored by perhaps the most original systems ecologists of the century will want this book. To further enhance the users ability to apply the lessons of this book, there is included a CD-ROM disc which provides the fundamental tools for modeling at all scales. Key Features* The book makes it possible to teach modeling and simulation without much prior knowledge of mathematics* Reasons for modeling and simulation are discussed* The book makes modeling and simulation fun by keeping focused on simplified overview minimodels that have important principles to science and society* The steps in successive chapters are arranged so that readers can teach themselves modeling, simulation, and the programming necessary to simulate the systems they diagram* The CD-ROM has minimodel programs and versions of QuickBasic and EXTEND to run them

The book provides a variety of examples of modelling. Drawn from economics, biology, engineering, chemistry and physics. Typically, a model will be accompanied with a diagram of the interacting variables. This is essential to understand the essence of the situation. The code is written in Basic and is entirely reproduced in an accompanying table. Today perhaps, the use of Basic has been largely deprecated. But it does mean that if you want to rewrite the code in another language, then this is straightforward. Usually, each example program is less than 50 lines, which alludes to the compactness of the simulation.

The authors also offer broad advice and observations throughout the text. Like not jumping into simulating at the final full level of detail. Instead they recommend starting with modelling with only the important features. Then, after you have this implemented, try to get insight into the behaviour and only later add extra parts. The debugging is simpler this way.

Another advice is to put limits of the amount of complexity you will model. Deliberately dial down the level of details you will insert into your program. At the most pragmatic level, complexity increases the chances of coding error. And if there are many coefficients, determining the appropriate values for these is awkward. Plus of course, understanding the overall system diagram is harder the more intricate the system.

And you should always strive to compare your model's predictions with observations. Don't get engrossed with the elegance of your simulated results.
