This course, together with sister courses C111 and C207, are expected to strike a balance between generalities and specific examples, between stochastic and deterministic models, and between describing finished work and actual hands-on modeling on the part of a student. The group of courses C111, C207, C304, and C305 are the heart of this programme, as they attempt to put the diversity of topics in the curriculum in a unified perspective. They are expected to convey the spirit of mathematical modeling in a coherent manner, through a proper mix of discussion of principles with aptly chosen case-studies from diverse fields, thus putting the methodological training of the rest curriculum in a unified perspective.
