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.
Upcoming Classes, Winter 2021
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.
