Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
Attribute: 3NS, QP-F

This course is canceled effective 10.29.2008.

Techniques for creating computer models in the sciences and social sciences. The first half considers mathematical modeling, numerical methods and visualization using MATLAB. The second half considers agent-based modeling in scientific and social systems. Students obtain hands-on experience using NetLogo. Common themes (e.g. diffusion and contagion) are explored across disciplines and modeling paradigms. The course will be enhanced by visitors from the Complex Systems Advanced Academic Workshop of the University of Michigan, who will participate in sessions that develop student model-building skills. Enrollment limit: 35.
