This course integrates the use of mathematics and computers for modeling various phenomena drawn from the natural and social sciences. Scientific topics, organized as case studies, will span a wide range of systems at all scales, with special emphasis on the life sciences. Mathematical tools include data analysis, discrete and continuous dynamical systems and discrete geometry. The course will provide training through programming in Mathematica and/or MATLAB.
Prerequisites: MTH 112 or MTH 114. CSC 111 recommended.
