Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Our intention is to provide a broad coverage of topics (see annotation of the course) in order to acquaint students with the principles of the subject taught and their practical applications.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


Definition and use of models, model types (physical, mathematical - deterministic and stochastic). Numerical methods of finite elements and finite differences. Conceptual models, boundary and inner conditions, initial conditions. Model quality control - sensitivity, calibration, verification. Models based on cellular automata and multi-agent systems.
