« Introduction

In the previous chapters we went in steps through the process of model construc­ tion and simulation, from the initial definition of model purpose to the simulation runs. At the end of this process, a simulation program is available, a tool for studying the entire behavioral spectrum of the model as a function of parameter choice. Assuming validity of the model, the development and the use of this tool can increase our understanding of the system enormously. Simulations with the model lead to new information and new insights about the system.
