Mathematical Modelling 2

7.5 credits

Mathematical modelling has a basic role in physics, engineering, economics and computer science. The aim for the course is to develop knowledge as well as ability in this type of mathematical modelling. Several computational aids and the typesetting program LaTeX will be studied.

A central part of the course is a project work that should be presented in a written report as well as presented verbally.


Växjö is a modern city with more than 80,000 inhabitants. The city has been declared "the Greenest City in Europe" because of its focus on environmentally sound solutions and the environmental programs implemented.

Being a student in Växjö you have easy access to everything – the city centre, the woods and the lakes. The pedestrian path from campus around Lake Växjösjön reaches almost all the way to the city centre and is perfect for jogging or taking long walks.

Campus Växjö is modeled along the lines of an American campus university and is the natural meeting place for students in Växjö. Campus is always bustling with life, and students move between lecture rooms, the University Library and the restaurants, pubs and outdoor recreational areas.
