Competencies / intended learning achievements
Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to
- to describe and apply models for the analysis of complex systems
- analyse and visualise the simulation results of these complex models
- to explain essential properties of complex phenomena (emergence, bifurcations, chaos) on the basis of a mathematical description of non-linear dynamic systems
- explain conditions for the transition to chaotic systems,
- model different concepts of complex systems,
- to analyse implemented concepts and system characteristics on concrete systems,
- implement basic techniques of data visualisation and apply them to specific problems
- analyse and categorise available techniques in terms of quality, efficiency and suitability for specific data
- select and apply appropriate visualisation techniques based on their functionality for the respective problem
