Note: This is a final year undergraduate course organised by the University of Aberdeen.
This course shows you how to develop mathematical descriptions of phenomena. We use mathematical techniques to describe a large variety of “real-world” systems: spreading of infectious diseases, onset of war, opinion formation, social systems, reliability of a space craft, patterns on the fur of animals (morphogenesis), formation of galaxies, traffic jams and others. This course boosts your employability and teaches tools that are highly relevant for almost every researcher.
