Advanced Mathematical Sciences II (FY2008)

Modeling and Simulation of Complex Systems

 Modeling and Simulation are becoming the new essential solving methods for Mathematical Science study as the crucial methodologies to understand nonlinear complex phenomena. This subject will be organized by top researchers in nonlinear science study from various fields such as plasma science, fluid science, biology, ecology, molecular science, economy, earth science and cosmology. It will offer you the opportunities to explore the new directions for Advanced Mathematical Sciences as well as to learn the approaches to the complex phenomena through the logics and numeric calculations.
 The Lectures in this subject will be given in omnibus style by top international researchers covering the latest topics regarding the nonlinear science in English as the main language in this subject. Inter-departmental and interdisciplinary approaches are necessary.
