MATH 233 - Natural Resource and Electric Grid Modeling


Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring 2013

Prerequisite: MATH 102. Mathematical modeling of fish populations in rivers and electric power generation/distribution, two separate but sometimes related systems, the analysis of which can provide essential information for wise policy decision making. Examples of specific questions that might be addressed include: How should a modern electricity grid be designed to minimize loss of electricity and to accommodate use of new energy-generating technologies? How may hydroelectric power generation affect the relationship between native and non-native fish populations in rivers? The class will be divided into teams, each of which will complete an in-depth analysis of one particular question. Crowley.
