MTH 437 Introduction to Mathematical Modeling
4 hours; 4 credits
A project-based introduction to the essential components of mathematical modeling. Using fully developed case studies and exploratory student projects, the aim is to provide a broad perspective on modeling physical, biological, and societal phenomena using modern mathematical methods. In particular, emphasis will be placed on three prototypical modeling paradigms: dynamical systems, statistical/probabilistic modeling, and optimization.
