Computation and Systems Modeling Allied Field

Computation formula

Computation and Systems Modeling is the quantitative study of complex problems and systems through the use of mathematics, physics, and computer simulation. Within the Neuroscience major, the Computation and Systems Modeling Allied Field focuses on equipping students with analytical tools that are used to study neural information processing and dynamics, often involving large datasets.

Electives in the Computation and Systems Modeling Allied Field (choose 6 units)

Courses in the first group are listed separately because they are pre-requisites for some of the additional electives in Computation and Systems Modeling.

For ISP students, ISP courses listed below may count toward both ISP requirements and Computation and Systems Modeling.

  • MATH 230 Differential Calculus of Multivariable Functions
  • MATH 234 Multiple Integration and Vector Calculus
  • MATH 240 Linear Algebra
  • MATH 250 Elementary Differential Equations

Any one of the series below is an alternative for the above four classes:

  • MATH 281-1, 281-2, 281-3 Accelerated Mathematics for ISP
