Uncertainty and Error Management

Errors can occur at all levels in the modelling and simulation paradigm. Models themselves can have structural errors, parameters within the model can have errors, and data used to initialiize or to update the simulation computations can have errors. In every case, the main issue is to estimate the magnitude of the error and to stop the error from growing with each iterative time-step of the computational process.
