Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Course deals with unconvencional algorithms and its biological a physical principles. Students will have information on modern computational approaches for modeling and simulation complicated and complex transportation systems. It contains especially the problems of selected stochastic algorithms and their modification with supplemented evolutionary elements.
