Systems analysis is used for describing and analysing problems within many different disciplines. This course is intended to provide basic understanding of different systems in nature and society and how they may interact in a sustainable development. In particular, you will learn how different types of systems and processes can be analyzed and modelled with tools of systems analysis. Different methods of systems analysis will be discussed, together with principles for model building and assessment. In computer exercises, you will build, simulate and analyse different types of models.
There is also an aim for understanding relations between structure and behaviour of a system. General techniques, such as model fitting, sensitivity analysis and optimisation are treated and practiced in the computer exercises. A special focus is on human effects on environment and climate, and how these effects can be minimized for a sustainable development.
