Simulation - autumn 2016

The Simulation course is given in Autumn 2016 (starting on October 20th). See Korppi for details. The lectures are in English based mostly on the materials of the spring 2016 instance. (The previous instance contains links to older versions (2012 in Finnish) as well).


The course will include exercises that require operating with some Java-based simulation packages/libraries (like JavaSim or Desmo-J, see below). The exercises are preferably to be done in small groups (2-3 persons). Slides and stream capture videos are provided (stream capture mainly as one wmv-chunk)
