Prerequisites: Consent of Instructor(s)

Course Catalogue Description

Models and cases studies from biology, engineering and mechanics, in form of ordinary and partial differential equations. Geometric and discrete models. Elements of inverse problems (image and data processing). Stochastic models in finance. Coursework and computer lab with MATLAB.

Course Objectives

This course gives an introduction to mathematical modelling of several systems and phenomena in science, enginerring and finance. In addition to the modelling techniques, numerical methods for solving these models are presented.

Course Learning Outcomes

Students will learn about the nature of mathematical modelling, starting with a physical or biological model, representing it mathematically, simplifying and solving the resulting model and interpreting the results. They will be suggested to work in teams, to communicate appropriately and to present their results.

Tentative (Weekly) Outline

Models and cases studies from biology, engineering and mechanics, in form of ordinary and partial differential equations. Geometric and discrete models. Elements of inverse problems (image and data processing). Stochastic models in finance. Coursework and computer lab with MATLAB.
