Scientific models

In connection to a course on modelling I've been teaching at the Mathematical Sciences, me and my colleague Torbjörn Lundh have written a textbook on scientific models. It has just been published by Studentlitteratur and can be bought online here. The scope of the book is quite broad and our aim is to cover all kinds of model that appear in natural science: from scale models of ships, to animal models of dieases and abstract mathematical equations. The current edition is in Swedish, but we are looking to publish an English version in the near future.
