Introduction to Programming for Modeling and Simulation - Winter 2017

NOTE: This page will be continuously updated as the course progresses.



Course contents

Here's a first rough draft of the course contents. The course will kick off with a few lectures on general MATLAB programming, plotting, etc. This will then be followed by some examples of specific applications and an introduction to programming of larger simulation and modeling packages.


As course literature for the basic MATLAB introduction we'll use the excellent introduction written by Dr. Elzibieta Pekalska. Download it here.


The course is passed upon successful completion of all assignments and the individual project (described above). The only grades awarded are 'pass' or 'fail'. The computer assignments and project work will be evaluated during 'grading session', in the form of guided peer-review in groups of participants. Participation in the grading sessions is therefore mandatory.
