I want to know how can I begin to exercise the representation of a phenomenon in a mathematical model.
First of all, you probably need physical principles.I want to know how can I begin to exercise the representation of a phenomenon in a mathematical model.
To exercise a model one way is to feed it data and see if the model behaves the same as the real world.I want to know how can I begin to exercise the representation of a phenomenon in a mathematical model.
which part you did not understand?You could start by giving us a hint. What are you talking about?
Wadda-ya-mean by the term "exercise the representation of a phenomenon in a mathematical model." As an engineering professional who has had 35 years of industrial experience developing and applying mathematical models of physical systems, I have never heard this term before.which part you did not understand?
I think i did not use the right words. I am from Brasil. Sorry for the bad english. What I want to understand is how someone understand physical systems mathematically.Wadda-ya-mean by the term "exercise the representation of a phenomenon in a mathematical model."

Thank you very much for clarifying this. Yes, your previous post was a bit aggressive to English-only speakers. It's a classic intellectual retort to say "which word did you not understand". I've used it at times, but never at the PF.I think i did not use the right words. I am from Brasil. Sorry for the bad english. What I want to understand is how someone understand physical systems mathematically.
I don't think it is about using the right or wrong words, I just think you didn't use enough of them. What physical system? What part of it are you wanting to model? For what purpose? For example, today, I modeled the energy use of a fan -- will that be helpful to you...?I think i did not use the right words. I am from Brasil. Sorry for the bad english.

No, I think @Chestermiller 's approach was good as a broad outline.Do you have a different strategy to develop a mathematical model of a physical system?
