    4. 4. What is Computer Simulation?<br />Computer Simulation is a computer model, or a computational model that is a computer program, or network of computers, that attempts to simulate an abstract model of a particular system. Computer simulations have become a useful part of mathematical modeling of many natural systems in physics, astrophysics, chemistry and biology, human systems in economics, psychology, social science, and engineering. (Wikipedia, 2010)<br />
