Abstract

We point out a mistake that the authors of Kavitha et al. (2013) incurred by overlooking the physical meaning of their mathematical derivation. By doing this, we hope to emphasise the importance of an awareness of the strict links which mathematical models need to maintain with physical phenomena and systems.
