MATH 3MB3, Fall 2018
INTRODUCTION TO MODELLING
Introduction to mathematical modelling using analytical and numerical methods with a strong focus on physical applications. The goals of the class are fourfold. First, to give an overview of how to construct and understand models involving differential equations in a variety of fields such as biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, economics and other areas of natural and social sciences. Second, to analyze these models analytically, using algebra and calculus. All necessary mathematical concepts will be introduced or reviewed. Third, to make use of software such as MATLAB and R to perform computational analysis of these models. Last, to understand how to interpret model results back into the original motivating context.
INSTRUCTOR: D. Korytowski
Introduction to computational modelling using software such as R or MATLAB. Analytical modelling using algebra and calculus. The development and analysis of models will be illustrated with examples selected from biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, economics, or other areas of natural or social sciences.
