Winter Term (2010) - Introduction to Computational Modeling

This course provides a multi-disciplinary introduction to computational modeling.  Computational modeling allows researchers to study complex, nonlinear systems.  Computational models require extensive calculations, usually performed with a computer, but also require little mathematical sophistication.  The goal of the course is to guide students through the formulation of their own conceptual model and the construction of a computational model.  The course includes an introduction to the literature on computational models, exposure to computational modeling software, and guidance for producing a workable model.  Students will present their model and results for the final course activity.
