- Course objectives
- The course offers a wide overview of computational modeling and gives students a practical experience with computational modeling.
- Learning outcomes
- At the end of the course students will be able to: describe main concepts of complex systems (particularly "feedback loops"); explain main principles and applications of computational modeling; compare modeling approaches; describe well-know case studies in computational modeling; create a computational model.
- Introduction, history, role of modeling and simulation in research, applications. Computational models.
- Complex systems, system thinking, feedback loops.
- System dynamics approach, examples (demographics, Limits to growth).
- Agent based modeling: basic principles, cellular automata, decentralized systems.
- Game theory, models of cooperation. Models of adaptation (genetic algorithms, neural networks).
- Modeling of networks: examples of networks and their properties, models of networks.
- Analysis and evaluation of models.
- Application of modeling from different areas (e.g. economics, traffic, epidemiology, biology).
