  Model (abstract) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An abstract model (or conceptual model) is a theoretical construct that represents physical, biological or social processes, with a set of variables and a set of logical and quantitative relationships between them.
A conceptual model is a representation of some phenomenon by logical and mathematical objects such as functions, relations, tables, stochastic processes, formulas, axiom systems, rules of inference etc. A conceptual model has an ontology, that is the set of expressions in the model which are intended to denote some aspect of the modeled object.
Esthetic considerations that may influence the structure of a model might be the modeller's preference for a reduced ontology, preferences regarding probabilistic models vis-a-vis deterministic ones, discrete vs continuous time etc. For this reason users of a model need to understand the model's original purpose and the assumptions of its validity.

 MODEL   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A model is a device, scheme, or procedure typically used in systems analysis to predict the consequences of a course of action; a model usually aspires to represent the real world (to the degree needed in analysis)--for example, a relation between some observed phenomena.
A deterministic MODEL generates the response to a given input by one fixed law; a stochastic MODEL picks up the response from a set of possible responses according to a fixed probability distribution (stochastic models are used to simulate the behavior of real systems under random conditions).
In (3) behavioral models, the relations are transformations, equations or operating rules and the representation is based on the assurance that the behavior of the model corresponds to the behavior of the system modelled.

 Bohr Model
If Thomson's plum pudding model was correct, the experiments would be sort of similar to firing BB's from a BB gun into a thin slab of cream cheese with chives.
Thus the plum pudding model of the atom collapsed: most of the mass and the positive charge of the atom was concentrated into a very small volume.
In the model transitions to other "final" states such as n equal to 1 or 3, 4, 5, etc. are also predicted and the wavelengths in the spectrum for these are found experimentally to exist.

Model organisms are less costly, fewer ethical constraints are encountered using them, and, historically, more research data have been generated in the past (e.g.
In order to explore the advantages of using model organisms in classrooms, I will examine their desirable attributes, why certain organisms have been chosen as model organisms for teaching, the advantages of using model organisms in teaching, and examples of model organisms popular in biology instruction.
A model organism is one that possesses the virtues of tractability and accessibility that can be used in experimental manipulation both in school and research.

 Football Commentary: Dynamic Programming Model
So, Romer's model is silent regarding decisions that don't involve field position, such as two-point conversions, or whether to go for a TD rather than a FG with one second left in the first half.
Our Model shows that it can be optimal to try a two-point conversion early in the second quarter of a close game (and earlier in a rout), but the increase in the probability of winning from doing so at that point is small.
The earliest model we are aware of is that of former NFL quarterback Virgil Carter and Robert E. Machol in their article "Operations Research On Football," which appeared in 1971 in the journal Operations Research.

 The Bohr Model
The Bohr Model is probably familar as the "planetary model" of the atom illustrated in the adjacent figure that, for example, is used as a symbol for atomic energy (a bit of a misnomer, since the energy in "atomic energy" is actually the energy of the nucleus, rather than the entire atom).
In the Bohr Model the neutrons and protons (symbolized by red and blue balls in the adjacent image) occupy a dense central region called the nucleus, and the electrons orbit the nucleus much like planets orbiting the Sun (but the orbits are not confined to a plane as is approximately true in the Solar System).
This similarity between a planetary model and the Bohr Model of the atom ultimately arises because the attractive gravitational force in a solar system and the attractive Coulomb (electrical) force between the positively charged nucleus and the negatively charged electrons in an atom are mathematically of the same form.

 Model
An overemphasis on addictive behaviors and a lack of training in the diagnosis and treatment of co-existing mental disorders created a blind spot in the eyes of chemical dependency counselors to the underlying multiple problems of the treatment resistant, relapse-prone patient with Axis I and II diagnoses.
The biopsychosocial model of addictive disease is emerging as the most comprehensive and holistic body of theory and practice.
One should be wary of models that tease apart the "bio", "psycho", and "social" aspects of addiction to the exclusion of the other parts.

 Model of the Evolution of IR Galaxies   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The model is based on template spectra of starburst and normal galaxies, and on the local infrared luminosity function.
The derived evolution of the IR luminosity function may be linked to a bimodal star formation process, one associated with the quiescent and passive phase of the galaxy evolution and one associated with the starburst phase, trigerred by merging and interactions.
The model is intended as a convenient tool to plan further observations, as illustrated through predictions for Herschel, Planck and ALMA observations.

 Pneumonia: New Prediction Model Proves Promising
The model recently was announced by a team of researchers supported through a grant from the Federal Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR).
The model also predicts other important medical outcomes, such as length of hospitalization, admission to an intensive care unit for respiratory failure or hemodynamic compromise, and time to usual activities.
They suggest that if the model had been used, 26-31 percent of the patients who were hospitalized for care could have been treated safely as outpatients, and an additional 13-19 percent could have been hospitalized only briefly for observation.

 Model Performance Characteristics
Since each "model" is actually a system of integrated components, even slight “tweaks” to any of the components can drastically effect the model's performance characteristics.
Model performance is a function of model error - which can be split into two components (systematic error and random error).
However, in order for EMC to gain a more complete picture of model performance, all users of NCEP model output should provide their subjective observations of model performance by submitting their subjective observations of bias.

 CPRC Transtheoretical Model
The Transtheoretical model is currently conceptualized in terms of several major dimensions.
Transitions between the stages of change are effected by a set of independent variables known as the processes of change.
These include decisional balance (the pros and cons of change), self-efficacy (confidence in the ability to change across problem situations), situational temptations to engage in the problem behavior, and behaviors which are specific to the problem area.

 Presentation Model
The essence of a Presentation Model is of a fully self-contained class that represents all the data and behavior of the UI window, but without any of the controls used to render that UI on the screen.
As a result it trade-offs with Model View Presenter: allowing you test without the UI, support for some form of multiple view and a separation of concerns which may make it easier to develop the user interface.
If you want to separate the presentation logic then the difference between Presentation Model and Model View Presenter is that that Presentation Model avoids the need to create a view interface and test stubs but adds the need to synchronize its state with the view.

 The Copernican Model: A Sun-Centered Solar System
Thus, in the Copernican model the Sun was at the center, but the planets still executed uniform circular motion about it.
As a consequence, the Copernican model, with it assumption of uniform circular motion, still could not explain all the details of planetary motion on the celestial sphere without epicycles.
We may also note that the Copernican model implicitly questions the third tenet that the objects in the sky were made of special unchanging stuff.

 Model   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The most immediate kind of a model is a metasystem which implements a homomorphic relation between states of two subsystems, a modeled system and a modeling system.
Under these conditions S is a good model, and the modeling system M can predict the behavior of the world W.
We can call S a generator of predictions about W. However, it is possible that M is itself a model, in which case S is a meta-model.
