Compartmental modeling of human lactation

Abstract

A difficult task for a novice modeler is beginning a modeling project. The methods described here delineate the modeling process step by step. Aristotle is quoted as having said 'One learns to play the flute by playing the flute,' and the same principle holds somewhat for modeling. An excellent means for understanding modeling is to work with example models, altering rate coefficients and model structure, to learn first-hand the mechanics of the process. An excellent resource for viewing and downloading published models is the Library of Mathematical Models of Biological Systems, and can be accessed via the World Wide Web at the address http://gopher.dml.georgetown.edu/model/model.html. This modeling library provides access to working models of biological systems. Experimenting with available examples of models, such as those presented in this volume and those available through the Modeling Library, provides an excellent opportunity for new modelers to get started in compartmental modeling.
