Modelling in this way can suggest further research or stimulate theoretical development. The quantitative description provided by the model can then be used to make predictions and identify further areas for experimental or theoretical research, which can then be carried out, focusing on areas where the model and reality are different, creating an iterative process of improved understanding.
