MATH 203 – Mathematical Modeling; Weekly hours: 2+1, ECTS: 5
The aim of the course is to give the students basic knowledge of mathematical modelling with stress on empirical modeling. Students will learn how to analyze and interpret the experimentally obtained data, hot to develop empirical model, but also to analyze the empirical models using software. The course covers the following topics: Introduction to mathematical modelling. Treatment of engineering data – Numerical interpolation using computer software MATLAB. Numerical differentiation using computer software MATLAB. Numerical integration using computer software MATLAB. Empirical models – Linear regression model. Using MATLAB software for least- squares calculations, Empirical models and physical laws). Empirical models – Multiple regression model (Estimating the coefficients, Developing a model, Estimating least-squares coefficients in multiple regression model by MATLAB software, Drawing graphs with MATLAB software, Confounding and collinearity, Model selection).
