SYSC 435/535: Modeling and Simulation with R & Python

An overview of computer modeling & simulation approaches for studying complex systems with emphasis on using the general purpose programming tools R and Python. Gives an overview of statistical and simulation-based approaches for simulating dynamics, Monte Carlo methods for addressing uncertainty and risk, and interacting agents to incorporate heterogeneity and network effects. Software and programming environments explored include R and Python. Students will have the option of using exclusively R or Python or may choose to use either environment throughout the course. Fully online.
