Mathematical modelling is an important tool in the study of physical and biological phenomena. The field of Modelling and Computational Science from University of Ontario Institute of Technology from University of Ontario Institute of Technology combines the implementation of mathematical models, computer algorithms and knowledge in a particular area of application in order to provide an additional tool for the study of phenomena and, in particular, to facilitate the study of problems that are intractable or difficult to study using other approaches.
Mathematical models and computational science are powerful methods to study problems such as atmospheric phenomena; climate variability; molecular behaviour of matter; protein folding; option pricing in financial markets; and many other physical, biological, medical, environmental and economic problems.
The university's membership in the Shared Hierarchical Research Computer Network (SHARCNET), the Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform (SOSCIP) and the advanced local computing infrastructure provides access to state-of-the-art computational facilities.
