Prerequisites / Organisational information

MNF-bioc-220 or equivalent. Basic knowledge of MATLAB

Contents

The unit will be delivered through a combination of lectures and computer-based accompanying assigments. Students will use higher-level programming languages to manipulate numerical models provided by the organizers. We will discuss typical model errors and provide strategies for error minimization. At the end of the course, students will develop their own simple models to address a scientific problem of their choice.
