This subject demonstrates how the mathematical modelling process naturally gives rise to certain classes of ordinary and partial differential equations in many contexts, including the infectious diseases, the flow of traffic and the dynamics of particles and of fluids. It advances the student’s knowledge of the modelling process, as well addressing important mathematical ideas in deterministic modelling and the challenges raised by system nonlinearity.
On completion of this subject, students should:
Three written assignments amounting to a total of up to 50 pages, due at regular intervals during semester (30%); 3-hour written examination in the examination period (70%)
|Breadth Options:|| |
This subject is not available as a breadth subject.

In addition to learning specific skills that will assist students in their future careers in science, they will have the opportunity to develop generic skills that will assist them in any future career path. These include:
Applied Mathematics |
Applied Mathematics (specialisation of Mathematics and Statistics major)
Science-credited subjects - new generation B-SCI and B-ENG.
Selective subjects for B-BMED
