MATH 3610 - Mathematical Modeling


(MQR-AS)      
Fall (offered alternate years). 4 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: two semesters of calculus or permission of instructor.

Staff.

Introduction to the theory and practice of mathematical modeling. This course compares and contrasts different types of mathematical models (discrete vs. continuous, deterministic vs. stochastic), focusing on advantages, disadvantages and limits of applicability for each approach. Case-study format covers a variety of application areas including economics, physics, sociology, traffic engineering, urban planning, robotics, and resource management. Students learn how to implement mathematical models on the computer and how to interpret/describe the results of their computational experiments.
