Module Overview

Case Studies in Industrial Modelling

This module will present examples of mathematical models arising from practical problems in technological settings. For each case study, all stages of modelling will be discussed, including model formulation, mathematical analysis, numerical simulation and visualization of solutions. It aims to introduce and familiarize students with mathematical research which is problem oriented instead of  topic oriented; to give students experience with formulating and analysing mathematical models.
