MATH-502 Deterministic Mathematical Models
Fall for 2017-2018
Spring for 2017-2018
Shaw, Ken
A graduate level course in basic applied mathematical modeling with emphasis on derivation and analysis of models via numerical linear algebra and differential equation methods including variational analysis. Includes both ordinary and partial differential equations of first order. Applications of ordinary differential equations include age-structured populations; partial differential studies will be directed towards conservation laws and traffic flow. The course will also provide basic introductions to Matlab and its openware clone Octave. Software and instructional manuals will be available at either modest or no cost.

Fall and spring.

Prerequisites: multivariable calculus and linear algebra.
