What is a Model?

A model is a more or less simplified description of some physical system. Usually it involves mathematical relations between different physical variables and parameters. Such relations can be investigated either with analytical tools (i.e. with mathematical methods based on equations and alike), with numerical tools (usually computer software), or with a combination of both.

How a Model Can Help You

A model can be an extremely valuable tool to ensure fast and cost-efficient progress in development and problem solving.

As an example, a model for some laser device may bring you the following benefits:

The modeling skills of Dr. Paschotta are certainly one of the crucial factors behind the success of his research and development activities. Utilize this experience for your own business!

Conditions for Successful Modeling

The ultimate criterion for success of modeling should be usefulness, rather than e.g. some technical detail. Is modeling always useful? For sure not! For successful modeling, the following is required:
