** Description **

This course will introduce the student to discrete, continuous and probabilistic modeling of problems from industry, finance and the life and physical sciences. The emphasis will be on the process of generating an appropriate model for the problem in question, so that the student can gradually develop intuition about the strengths and limits of modeling approaches. The student will complete a research project, developing and analyzing a model of a system of their choice.
