Dear all,

based on a majority vote via Doodle, the tutorial will take place every

Thursday 14-16 in building E1 3, Seminar Room 016.

Concerning the bonus points: One of the requirements to get the bonus is to present the solutions in the tutorial. Since not everybody can attend the tutorial we reserve the right to (occasionally) make an "Interview" with students who submit an exercise, but don't show up in the tutorial. During this "Interview" we'll check the understanding etc. of the submitted exercise.

Have a nice weekend!

On November 16 and 17 the National IT Summit will be in Saarbrücken. 
Therefore three accompanying events will take place on November 16 in 
the buildings of our faculty.

Please note: all lecture halls and most of our seminar rooms are needed 
for these events.

Therefore no lectures and no exercises can be conducted on Wed., Nov. 16 
2016

Modelling and Simulation

 

LecturerProf. Verena Wolf
Assistant: Charalampos Kyriakopoulos, Alexander Lück, Michael Backenköhler

Schedule:

Wednesday 12:15 – 13:45 (lecture), Building E1 3, Room HS001
Friday 10:00 – 11:30 (lecture),  Building E1 3, Room HS001

Thursday 14:00 – 16:00 (tutorial),  Building E1 3, Seminar Room 016
 

Credits: 9 ECTS points, advanced lecture

Objectives:
The course aims at giving the participants knowledge of the basic concepts in the area of modelling and simulation. The course will focus on modelling and simulation of real-world discrete event systems, that is, at discrete time instants events occur and change the state of the system. Examples of discrete events are customer arrivals at a queue of a service desk, biochemical reactions in a living cell, telephone calls in a call center, etc. Moreover, continuous models will be discussed and their usage in traffic modelling as well as  for the description of biochemical reaction networks.

Syllabus:

  • Introduction
  • Differential equations and numerical simulation
  • Modelling languages: Petri Nets, Reaction rules, Guarded Commands
  • Introduction to Probabilities
  • Markov Chains in discrete and continuous time, and their simulation
  • Non-Markov models and Discrete Event Simulation
  • Statistical analysis of output
  • (Mean field models of dynamical networks)
  • (Advanced simulation techniques)

 

Prerequisites:
The course is open to students from computer science or bioinformatics interested in modelling and simulation. Mathematical skills and basic programming skills in Matlab are of advantage but not mandatory.

Certification Conditions:
There will be two written exams (mid-term before Christmas). Their grades contribute equally to the final grade (“Schein”). Handing in or presentation of assignments will give a bonus for the final grade. An oral re-exam is possible which covers those parts of the lecture where a retake is desired.
Important: You have to register at the HISPOS system to participate in the exams (except for ERASMUS students).

Exam schedule:
Midterm: Fri, 16.12, 10:15 am

Endterm: Wed 15.02, 12:15 pm,
