Properties of light have been well studied and although there is plenty we do not know, we know enough to predict how light will behave. We do this mathematically with high precision and it has little to do with what shape our planet is, these are just properties of light and matter.

If mathematical models used to describe behavior of light were inaccurate allot of existing technologies would not work, we are taking about computers, cellphones, cars etc technologies we use every day, so we can say with high degree of confidence that we can accurately predict how light behaves.

Considering what i said above, what is the mathematical model that describes behavior of light that would lead to sunset in a "Flat Earth"

I am not judging people exploring this concept although I disagree with them. However I keep seeing scientific method being abandoned in almost every discussion.

Videos contain unverified, unrepeatable, questionable information, and lack any mathematical or experimental basis.

Day and night cycle can be accurately explained and simulated with mathematical models within conventional model where earth is a sphere. I would like to see at least groundwork for mathematical basis that explains and models this cycle with "Flat Earth" approach.

If you can not accurately mathematically describe the behavior of the sun in the sky, what would be the use? Spherical model(even if only a model) is able to do that with high accuracy and is logically more suitable for making predictions.

Given properties of light we have verified, it is not possible to mathematically model or simulate flat disk that would follow patterns of night and day we see on Earth. Again if you know of such a model, please share.
