In several recent papers studying the Cell Method (CM), which is a numerical method based on a truly algebraic formulation, it has been shown that numerical modeling in physics can be achieved even without starting from differential equations, by using a direct algebraic formulation. In the present paper, our focus will be above all on highlighting some of the theoretical features of this algebraic formulation to show that the CM is not simply a new numerical method among many others, but a powerful numerical instrument that can be used to avoid spurious solutions in computational physics.
