  • CSCI 4314 - Dynamic Models in Biology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Surveys computational and mathematical modeling to illuminate biological processes. Students work together to learn to build and analyze models using a variety of numerical tools, tackle meaningful biological problems, and communicate effectively across disciplines. Specific topics: Langevin dynamics of protein folding, agent-based models, finite difference models of organismal growth, stochastic and deterministic cellular automata game of life, models of behavior. Recommended prerequisite: comfort with mathematics and/or programming experience, and more advanced understanding (upper undergraduate level) of any relevant discipline. Same as CSCI 5314.
  • CSCI 4831 - Special Topics in Algorithms
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Covers topics of interest in computer science at the upper-division undergraduate level. Content varies from semester to semester.

  • CSCI 5423 - Biologically-inspired Multi-Agent Systems
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Explores the principles and emergent properties of collective dynamics through computational modeling and theory. Focuses on multi-agent systems using insights from biology, like the self-assemblage of cells and insect colony behavior. Topics include designing swarm intelligence, networked agents, cellular computing and self-assembly, optimization, synchronization, and evolutionary computation. Uses cross-discipline research developments to practice applied techniques. Biology background is not required. Recommended prerequisite: CSCI 2270 and basic knowledge of programming.
  • CSCI 7000 - Current Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Covers research topics of current interest in computer science that do not fall into a standard subarea. May be repeated up to 8 total credit hours.
