"Scientific Research through Computer Models, Simulations, and Experiments"

Richard Lewis is back with a new subject:

A computer model is a mathematical algorithm representing the behavior of a system.   A simulation is a specific execution of a model.   How are these used to progress research in quantum physics, astrophysics, chemistry, biology, economics, psychology, sociology, and other complex systems? 

Are computer models limited?   Can we model the human brain?  Can we make testable discoveries in astrophysics, quantum mechanics, and biological evolution?     Could they accurately predict natural disasters like earthquakes and hurricanes?

What does it mean if we can reproduce physical reality with bits of information and simple logical operators?

We’ll explore current technology and ponder the possibilities of the future.

We'll go to the Blue Moose afterward.......  Cole Morgan[masked]

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
