Workshop of mathematical modelling

Additional Info

  • ECTS credits: 6
  • Semester: 3
  • University: Autonomous University of Barcelona
  • Objectives:


    In-depth analysis of case studies, practice of working team dynamics, and development of presentation abilities. The problems will be illustrative of several application fields as well as of the different types of model. The case studies will not necessarily fit only into the category of stochastic or optimisation models.

  • Topics:


    Mathematical modelling is a problem-driven task. Its methodology is quite generic and revolves around the so-called mathematical modelling cycle: 1: Analysis, simplification, representation; 2: Mathematical treatment; 3: Interpretation; 4: Validation, error estimation, refinement. The main activity of the workshop is a project to be developed by the students, organised in teams. The project tries to simulate the situation of an interdisciplinary team that has been hired by a company. Besides, the workshop could include also some talks about general ideas, techniques and illustrative examples.
