Module overview

This module will teach you about the mathematical modelling for contemporary real world problems. The module will consist of four sets of lectures, on four distinct but related mathematical topics. The main aim is to give students an introduction to cutting edge techniques in mathematical modelling. The four topics will be scaling and critical behaviour in real world systems (including financial markets); information theory; machine learning and networks (including the spread of information across social networks such as Twitter).
