Models are a key component of modern science. Scientists devise, test, and use them to conceptualize, predict, simulate, as well as graphically display data and phenomena that could not otherwise be easily understood. Samples include the double-helix model of DNA, and the Lotka-Volterra model of predatory-prey dynamics. This course will expose students to a selection of topics of current interest in modeling and interpretation of data.
