Mathematical Modelling And Simulations


What is mathematical modelling? Types of problems and their solution. Dimensional analysis and similitude modelling. Basic statistics. Approximation and Validating Models. Fitting curves to data. Monte Carlo simulation. Deterministic models. Stochastic models. Optimization. Preparation and evaluation of experiments. Exponential growth and decay. Traffic flow models. Modelling vibration. Modelling ship motion.


Goals and competencies

The purpose of the course is to get acquainted with the student with methods and software tools for mathematical modelling and simulation in the technique.
