MAMT 568 Mathematical Modeling

Credits

3 cr.

Course Description

This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling. The emphasis will be on learning to analyze a real-world situation or problem, in order to distill from it important information, and to learn mathematical techniques to encode this information in equation form, and then solve the equations, interpreting the mathematical solution back in the real-world situation. Topics covered will be selected from difference equations, Markov chains, graph theory, regression analysis, and linear programming, as well as other areas depending upon the interests of the students.
