Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Many books deal with the techniques of designing, building and testing computer
models and simulations, but few have seriously examined what models are based
on, their inherent limitations, and their essential role in extending human
knowledge. This book fills this need.

It focuses on computer models throughout, yet its exposition of the nature and
limits of modeling is entirely general. A chapter on the development of
celestial mechanics models illustrates how models progress and are essential to
natural science. Chapters on models of global climate, population, economics and
warfare, illustrate both the possibilities and limits of modeling nature and
similar deterministic processes in human affairs.

The book also discusses the serious limitations placed on the simulation of
human societies and their histories, since models must deal with both cultural
and natural forces. The concluding chapter explores virtual realities as systems
of interactive images generated by computer models.
