Week 4: September 21 - 25

Mayfly Model

We continue our exploration of the "Mayfly model", paying particular attention to the long-term behavior of the system.

Machine Arithmetic

Although mathematics deals with real numbers of infinite precision, these numbers must be represented in a computer using a finite number of digits. We examine ways in which this can be done effectively, and some of the problems and issues that arise in doing so.
