Mar 13, 2013 - Scientific Predictions Through Computer Simulations - Dr. Falk Herwig, Assistant Professor, Physics and Astronomy

In the simulations presentation I discuss the basic principles of scientific predictions through computer simulations. Although the topic of the simulations will be in astrophysics the presentation is aimed to convey fundamental aspects of the nature of predictive science and the kind of statements scientist can make based on such simulations. This presentation would enhance the publics awareness of scientific approach and can be useful on the present debate on climate change predictions based on simulations.
