computer simulation, simulation
(computer science) the technique of representing the real world by a computer program
a theoretical sun that moves along the celestial equator at a constant speed and completes its annual course in the same amount of time the real sun takes at variable speeds
(astronomy) Copernicus' astronomical model in which the Earth rotates around the sun
(astronomy) Ptolemy's model of the universe with the Earth at the center
(particle physics) a theory that involves an eleven-dimensional universe in which the weak and strong forces and gravity are unified and to which all the string theories belong
(particle physics) a theory that postulates that subatomic particles are one-dimensional strings
a statistical process involving a number of random variables depending on a variable parameter (which is usually time)
Markoff process, Markov process
a simple stochastic process in which the distribution of future states depends only on the present state and not on how it arrived in the present state
a stochastic process consisting of a sequence of changes each of whose characteristics (as magnitude or direction) is determined by chance
stationary stochastic process
a stochastic process in which the distribution of the random variables is the same for any value of the variable parameter
