In the WS 2017/18 the professorship offers the elective course Introduction to System Dynamics for Modeling Urban Metabolism.

The participants of this seminar are introduced to System Dynamics Methods. We deal with the modeling of complex spatial systems on the regional and urban level. In this context computational analysis methods for urban fabric (e.g. for pedestrian movement or economic potentials) and models for computing interactions between land uses are introduced. By means of system dynamics models we can simulate temporal changes of stocks and flows.
The learned skills are shown by several exercises. No technical previous knowledge is required.

Please inscribe to the course via this moodle website: moodle.uni-weimar.de/course/view.php
comming soon
The inscription key is "generative".

The following seminars are on the following Wednesdays from at 13:30 - 17:00 in the computer pool:
first meeting: 11.10.2017, 13:30 - 15:00 // Introduction
The course is organized in blocks. The detailed schedule is provided on the moodle page!


In the WS 2017/18 there is also the 3 CP course Advanced Computational Methods
Requirement for choosing this seminar is the parallel of past participation at the course Introduction to System Dynamics for Modeling Urban Metabolism, or good programming skills. In this seminar the programming skills and their application are enhanced.
The main idea of this course is to offer an extension of the Introduction course by an individual semester project. The semester performance it the definition and implementation of a self-defined task, which exemplifies the skills that are learned during the seminar.
Please contact Prof. König before inscribing in the course!
