Q SCI 497 Special Topics in Quantitative Science: Agent Based Modelling

(4 credits)
Winter 2019
Mondays & Wednesdays, 10:30am – 12:20pm
Instructor: Dr. Andrew Berdahl, berdahl@uw.edu

Agent-based models (aka individual-based models) provide a flexible framework for creating simple representations of complex phenomena in the life, social and physical sciences. In this play-based course we will learn to design, build and perform computational experiments using agent-based models. Along the way you will learn useful programming and data visualization skills
