Mathematical Modelling and Simulation (Winter Semester 2014/15)

Lecturer: PD Dr. Gudrun Thäter
Classes: Lecture (0109400), Problem class (0109500)
Weekly hours: 2+1

The general aim of this lecture course is threefold:

1) to interconnect different mathematical fields
2) to connect mathematics and real life problems
3) to learn to be critical and to ask relevant questions.

We deal with topics such as

  • Game theory
  • Oscillation
  • Population Models
  • Simulation of traffic
  • Wiener processes
  • Chaotic behavior
  • Heat conduction process
  • Fluids and flow

There are no special prerequisites.

During the lecture course there will be one lecture of a person from industry.


To earn the credits you have to attend the lecture and finish the work on one project during the term in a group of 2-3 persons. The topic of the project is up to the choice of each group.
