Mathematical model

Course subject(s) 1. Introducing Mathematical Modelling

In the previous section the question became:
Can you predict the number of rainbowfish in the aquarium after any number of days?

In the following video we are going to derive a mathematical model.

The first mathematical model

In the video, you have seen how the balance equation was derived:


In this section, you have seen how you can derive a difference equation and transform that into a differential equation. In the next section, we will do the next step: solve this differential equation.
