The Art of Modelling

Date: 30 August 2021 - 10 September 2021
Location: Wageningen

Modelling is a crucial part of today's science. Particularly in agronomy, ecology, soil sciences and environmental sciences, where models are used for assessing sensitivity of systems to disturbances or changes in external factors, and for predictions of future system states. This course provides an introduction to modelling.

Course FrequencyEvery two years
PrerequisitesNo previous PE&RC postgraduate courses are required. However, it helps if you have basic knowledge of mathematics (in particular basic algebra, vector and matrix algebra, differentiation, integration and differential equations). Participants who want to refresh their mathematics background knowledge can refer to the hand books "Mathematics at work: Volume 1, Vectors and matrices applied (2013)", and "Mathematics at work: Volume 2, Analysis applied (2010)", authored by M. de Gee. Both are available on-line and in the syllabus shop of the Mathematical and Statistical Methods group at Wageningen University.
