Continuous Model

Continuous modelling is the mathematical practice of applying a model to continuous data (data which has a potentially infinite number, and divisibility, of attributes). They often use differential equations and are converse to discrete modelling.

Modelling is generally broken down into several steps:

  • Making assumptions about the data: The modeller decides what is influencing the data and what can be safely ignored.
  • Making equations to fit the assumptions.
  • Solving the equations.
  • Verifying the results: Various statistical tests are applied to the data and the model and compared.
  • If the model passes the verification progress it is put into practice.
