Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
Course objectives
Selected methods of mathematical modeling are presented and developed. A comparison between deterministic and stochastic approaches is followed in detail. New trends in mathematical modeling are introduced and reviewed. Each chapter is supplemented by a summary of applied mathematical procedures.
Learning outcomes
After passing the course, the student will be able:
to define and interpret the basic notions used in the basic parts of mathematical modeling and to explain their mutual context;
to formulate relevant mathematical theorems and statements and to explain methods of their proofs;
to use effective techniques utilized in basic fields of mathematical modeling;
to apply acquired pieces of knowledge for the solution of specific problems including problems of applicative character.

Teaching methods
Lectures and discussion
Assessment methods
Active discussion during lectures, cooperation during classes. To conclude the term, one has to prove understanding the topics, to be able to create new concepts and this has to be shown in the homeworks.
