THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS AND SPECIFICITY OF MATHEMATICAL MODELLING
THE MATHEMATICAL MODEL AS A BASIS FOR THE NATURAL CLASSIFICATION OF SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES
- 1 Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University – St. Petersburg, Russia
This paper attempts to provide a transparent and, if possible, a formal hierarchy of the main types of mathematical models used in the description of dynamic processes inside, at first glance, different systems. It is emphasized that the mathematical modeling is a natural and universal environment for effective analysis of system processes of different nature. From our point of view, the term "system analysis" means the methodology for classification of real systems (physical, biological, economic, social, etc.), which is based on the classification of mathematical models that are used to describe these systems.
