Several types of database servers can be used to handle and select data by using some conditions. After pre-processing, data are inserted into the database servers. Some data are structured as Extensible Markup Language (XML). The Structured Query Language (SQL) standard and the relational data model provide a uniform, powerful language to express many query needs and, in principle, allow customers to choose between vendors. XML databases have recently become available in both commercial and open usages.

This is called a cyber-physical system (CPS) [129], which consists of distributed computation interconnected by computer networks that monitor and control switched physical entities interconnected by physical infrastructures [157, 158]. The data flow from an actual environment, computation based on the collected data, and control over our environment based on computations are main focuses [183]. 2 Meaning of Data Data is described as symbols associated with objects or concepts in the real world.

Org/html. 4 Concept 29 better understanding than detailed agent-based models. The model is used to guide researchers and provide a working hypothesis. This can include a simple ecological model as a socioeconomic model such as Ising-models [34, 99], Granovetter-type threshold models [79, 216] and voter models [39, 63, 141, 187]. There are some criticisms of simple models: They are too simple to use in decisionmaking. A simple model tends to be oversimplified and ignore other important parts of phenomena.
