Course Description
This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling.
We will cover some basic mathematical tools for the quantitative description of practical problems arising from physics, biology, economics and engineering. The use of these mathematical models allows us to quantitatively study and provide solutions to these problems.
The focus of this course is to give an overview of the mathematical techniques that are commonly used in practice, and illustrate the modeling procedure through some elementary examples.
You will get a taste of mathematical modeling.
