Chères et chers collègues,
J'ai le plaisir de vous informer de la nouvelle parution de mon ouvrage From Models to Simulations (2019) aux éditions Routledge en format "paperback" (couverture souple), à un prix donc plus accessible. Cordialement Franck Varenne Université de Rouen & ERIAC

Description This book analyses the impact computerization has had on contemporary science and explains the origins, technical nature and epistemological consequences of the current decisive interplay between technology and science: an intertwining of formalism, computation, data acquisition, data and visualization and how these factors have led to the spread of simulation models since the 1950s. Using historical, comparative and interpretative case studies from a range of disciplines, with a particular emphasis on the case of plant studies, the author shows how and why computers, data treatment devices and programming languages have occasioned a gradual but irresistible and massive shift from mathematical models to computer simulations.
