Scientists attempt to understand physical phenomena by constructing models, and a fundamental goal is to develop models whose solutions reflect the nature of the physical process. A dynamical model uses simplifying assumptions in the hope of capturing the essential characteristics in the evolution of a physical system over time. The development of models is based on experiments or observations. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss different approaches to using data to construct models and address the difficulties in modeling dynamical processes with high complexity.
