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.

Daniel B. Shank, Yoshihisa Kashima, Saam Saber, Thomas Gale, Michael Kirley PloS One Published: March 23, 2015 http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0120379 https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0120379 Abstract Empirical findings on public goods dilemmas indicate an unresolved dilemma: that increasing size—the number of people in the dilemma—sometimes increases, decreases, or does not influence cooperation. We clarify this dilemma by first classifying public goods dilemma properties that specify individual outcomes as individual properties (e.g., Marginal Per Capita Return) and group outcomes as group properties (e.
