The term model is used, in the context of criminal defense, to describe the general concept of replicating or constructing a representation of an event. In criminal defense investigations, a model generally takes the form of a descriptive dynamic model. In general, this form of model considers the impact of one taxonomic event on the next preceding event.[1] The model can be a mix of deterministic and stochastic events.[2] The overall goal in constructing the model is the ability to extract knowledge from the model in the form of an analytical line.


The above description is written in the context of criminal defense investigations. The specific method is not limited to criminal defense, and can be applied to a wide array of problem sets.
