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.
