Andrew M. Ross
Upcoming Classes, Fall 2020 and Winter 2021
- Math 121 Calculus 2 (two sections)
- Math 479/560 Optimization
and I'm not sure what else for Winter 2021.
- Math 419W/519: (Introduction to) Stochastic Modeling
(see Canvas for all info)
In this class, you'll learn Predictive Analytics: how to predict what will happen in a variety of real-world situations like time series data, queueing systems, insurance, etc.
- Syllabus for 2019, includes textbook information. Will probably run again in Winter 2021.
ran in Fall 2018; will probably run again in Fall 2020
In this class, you'll learn Prescriptive Analytics: how to model real situations as mathematical optimization (minimizing cost, maximizing lives saved, etc.), and the algorithms that computers use to solve those optimization problems. It's incredibly powerful--thousands of variables and constraints in class, and real-world problems can be solved with millions!
It's also related to Predictive Analytics via statistical model fitting and machine learning.
