### Introduction

Some of the solution techniques within Möbius, such as the simulator, operate directly on the model representation defined using the Atomic and Composed editors described in earlier chapters of the manual. These solvers operator on the model using the Möbius *model-level* abstract functional interface. There are other solution techniques, specifically the numerical solvers described in the next chapter, which require a different representation of the model as an input. Instead of operating on the high-level model description, numerical solution techniques use a lower-level, state space representation, namely the Markov chain.
