|Abstract||Systems analysis is about the application of mathematical concepts to solve real world problems in a quantitative manner. Areas covered include: Dynamic linear models with one and several variables, Non-linear models with one or several variables; discrete-time models; and continuous models in space and time.|
|Objective||The goal of the course is to develop quantitative skills in order to understand and solve a range of typical environmental problems.|
|Content||The subject of the exam is the content of my|
undergraduate lecture series Systemanalyse I and II (see http://www.up.ethz.ch/education/system_analysis/index_DE).
This course is closely aligned with the Imboden&Koch / Imboden&Pfenniger books, except that I essentially skip chapter 7.
|Lecture notes||No script is available, but you can purchase the Imboden/Koch or Imboden/Pfenniger books (or download some of the chapters yourself) through the Springer Verlag:|
