It offers an essential introduction to the most popular methods used for modelling and simulating systems and phenomena of interest, and an overview of these techniques and methods. The main concept of each technique and method is examined and case studies and links to free online tutorials and other helpful resources are provided. The volume aims to encourage students, researchers and practitioners in tourism and hospitality to enhance and enrich their toolbox in order to achieve a better and more profound knowledge of their field.


This book communicates the science and art of modelling in a way that will inspire many to adopt system-level perspectives and explore alternative research approaches. The application examples at the end of the book are especially helpful as they illustrate not only the usefulness of different modelling strategies but also the importance of methodological choices.
