1084TGoingViral
31 Aug 2019  Modeling Scenarios
Students employ randomization in order to create a simulation of the spread of a viral disease in a population (the classroom). Students then use qualitative analysis of the expected behavior of the virus to devise a logistic differential equation. Finally, students solve the...

1076TClimateBifurcation
08 Aug 2019  Modeling Scenarios
In this paper we present (for educational purposes) simple zero and one dimensional models for the mean temperature of the Earth. These models can exhibit bifurcations from the present Earth climate to an ice age or a ``Venus type of climate.'' The models are accompanied by Matlab...
