Numerical solutions are essential simulations, analytical methods
involve an equation.
In neuroscience, classical examples are calculating the membrane
potential of a cell the NEURON modelling package. Here you do not
calculation the membrane potential for any given point of time, you
calculate it over time, using the last known value. This is a
Figuring out the reversal potential of an ion channel using the Nernst
equation, this is an analytical equation.
