A theoretical model may have multiple Methods, or computational implementations. Since a method is a numerical property, it always has a certain precision. A method is implemented inside a simulation engine (or application), and each application can itself implement one or more methods.
Example Model & Method
If we use Newtonian mechanics as Model, then the Method would be the algorithmic implementation of calculating the multiple between m and a in the
F = ma equation.
We explain structured representation of a method here.
We introduce the concept of computational parameters in this page.
This page explains the relevance of the concept of numerical precision in the context of methods.
List of Available Methods¶
We present the list of methods available within our platform in a separate section of the documentation.
