CMPU 250 - Modeling, Simulation and Analysis

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
Principles of computation in the sciences, driven by current applications in biology, physics, chemistry, natural and social sciences, and computer science. Topics include: Discrete and continuous stochastic models, random number generation, elementary statistics, numerical analysis and algorithms, discrete event simulation, and point and interval parameter estimation. Students pursue projects that involve modeling phenomena in two to three different fields and simulate the model in order to understand mechanisms and/or explore new hypotheses or conditions.

Prerequisite(s): CMPU 102 , MATH 122 or MATH 125. CMPU 241  and /or MATH 221  recommended but not required.

Two 75-minute periods.
