Modeling and simulation provide substantial support for the planning, design, and evaluation of systems as well as the evaluation of strategies for system transformation and change. Its importance continues to grow partly due to the fact that its application is not constrained by discipline boundaries. This growth is also due to the ever-widening availability of computing resources. The course will discuss basic computer science/mathematical techniques needed for the modelling and simulation of discrete and continuous dynamical systems and the interpretation of simulation results. The examples in this course will be focused on but not limited to life sciences.
The goal of the course is to give an overview on techniques used in computer simulations, systematic insight into the spectrum of behaviors of dynamic systems, practical skills related to the implementation and interpretation of simulation models
The course consists of a number of (not mandatory but highly recommended) practical assignments and a final exam. The practical assignments are graded and everything that you hand in can improve your final grade.
The final grade is calculated with:
A successful completion of the course will be rewarded with 6ECTS.
The course material consists of the slides that are used in the lectures.
