Prerequisites: MAA101, MAA102

Mathematical Modeling (MAA107)

introduces the topic as it applies to physics,

biology and economics. The course

covers mathematical formalization which

can be used to describe some dynamics

related to the following topics: mechanical

and biological systems, evolution

of populations, pricing, contract theory,

etc. Students learn to evaluate models and

motivating questions, to determine how

mathematics can provide quantitative

or qualitative answers. To this end, the

course introduces students to and develops

tools and technics from dynamical

systems (e.g. recurrence relation and ordinary

differential equations) and random

evolution (e.g. Markov chain on a finite

state space and discrete martingale).
