Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Speed up of the computer develops the computer science. In this lecture the students will learn a new paradigm of scientific explanation and analysis though the lecture and the programming exercise. In this course, we learn an overview of the computational science, and its components, i.e., visualization. We discuss simulations of many-degree system, where we pick up some of system, traffic stream, meteorological model, cell games, complex systems. Required programming skills will be explained if necessary.

Preparation and
It is recommended to improve the program shown in the class and always see the result. 
Requirements Requirements:
Discuss in Japanese or English  
Grading Method The overall grade is evaluated based on the speech in the class (40%) and the assignments (60%). 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Message The theme of the course is a simulation of natural and  social phenomenon, their modeling and the type of simulation.
After the elements of the simulations are described,  we study programming. Then,  we write up a "specification" document for the simulation .
In order to match the level of students, we may modify the schedule written here. 
Other The language of instruction will be decided and announced by the instructor on the first day of class based on the language proficiency of the students. 
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
