    Abstract

    Climate is a complex notion and the object of numerous debates presently. In this paper, the concept will be studied through various dynamics models. The Daisyworld model, while simple is based on many hypotheses; it allows the study of the manner that plants, more specifically black daisies and white daisies, could optimize their abiotic environment, more specifically the climate, on a particular planet. Saltzman and Maasch's dynamic model studies the climate of past geological eras, more precisely, the variation of the percentage of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the variation of the mass of the global icecap and the variation of the deep ocean's temperature over time the Cenozoic. Thanks to these models, we will able to study the variation of the climate relative to some specific parameters and thus better understand its variation over time.
