  1. 1-001c-S-PopulationDecayThenSome

    18 Jun 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Dina Yagodich

    This is an adaption of Modeling Scenario 1-001-S-MandMDeathAndImmigration  in which death and immigration of m&m's is replaced by check outs and arrivals in a hotel and makes specific use of MatLab coding.

  2. 1-001d-S-HotelPopulationDecay

    03 Jul 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Dina Yagodich

    We offer students an opportunity to create a simulation model a hotel population with clients checking in and checking out according to two different disciplines as well as a number of different starting populations in the hotel.

  3. 1-067-S-ModelingWithSigmoidCurves

    18 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Natali Hritonenko

    The assignment considers two well-known models of population growth, Verhulst-Pearl and Gompertz models, for which qualitative and quantitative analyses are provided. The graphs of the corresponding functions have a sigmoidal or S-shape. The assignment contains two opposite, but related tasks:...
