Learning outcomes This curricular unit aims to the acquisition of a set of knowledge and skills that enables: 1) Analyze, solve numerically and interpret the solutions of the problems; 2) Develop simulation models, adjusted to the problems in analysis, implement them and validate them, taking into account the constraints of the problems and the limitations of the use of simulation. At the end of this curricular unit students should be able to develop simulation models (using specific languages) and have capacity for critical analysis that allows understanding and improvements proposal to existing simulation models with unsatisfactory performance.
Syllabus I – Algorithm Implementation 1. Error Analysis and Representation 2. Programming with Matlab 3. Iteractive Methods II – Scientific Simulation and Modelling 1. Discrete Simulation and Modelling 2. Continuous Simulation and Modelling 3. The Monte Carlo Method.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The learning activities consist of: - Two hours of weekly lectures to expose theoretical concepts (the lecturer will use multimedia material, in particular slides). - Two hours per week of laboratory practices in programming, in which the student will implement and test the acquired theoretical knowledge to solve exercises (the exercises will be provided by the lecturer). - all material will be made available online. Evaluation is performed in two phases: 1st. phase (Learning Period): - 1 Written Test (60%) - 1 Practical Work throughout the semester and out of class (40%). 2nd. phase (Exam): - Final exam for admitted students (60%).
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
