Abstract

The role of professionals who design, apply and then analyze the results of computer-based mathematical models is examined. A particular interest is expressed in the responsibilities of modelers when the recommendations of models impinge upon public policy and when these models become part of adversarial debate. An attempt is made to pinpoint areas in which the role of professional modelers is jeopardized by political debate and the client/consultant relationship.
