This course was
designed to show you what you can do with everything you learnt in your degree.
We will use mathematical techniques to describe a fast variety of “real-world” systems:
spreading of infectious diseases, onset of war, opinion formation, social
systems, reliability of a space craft, patterns on the fur of animals
(morphogenesis), formation of galaxies, traffic jams and others. This course
will boost your employability and it will be exciting to see how everything you
learnt comes together.
