1.204 Computer Modeling: From Human Mobility to Transportation Networks


Class Info

Introduces methods for modeling individual travels at a country scale. Reviews basic concepts of data analysis, modeling, and visualization techniques. Topics include data mining to identify the structure inherent in daily behavior; introduction to fractals, random walks and methods to analyze trajectories. Algorithms to model and characterize complex networks, and their applications to daily commuting, air travels, and roads. Includes weekly open laptop exercises based on the data sets and methods from the research papers covered in class. Exposes students to the current challenges and opportunities in networks applied to human mobility.

This class has 1.001, and 1.010 as prerequisites.

1.204 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by M. C. Gonzalez.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Fridays in 1-242.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
