Prof. Dr. Moritz Diehl
Modeling and System Identification (MSI) is concerned with the search for mathematical models for real-life systems. The course is based on statistics, optimization and simulation methods for differential equations. The exercises will be based on pen-and-paper exercises and computer exercises with MATLAB.

Exercise sessions are organized on (starting in the second week of the semester):
- Thursday 16:00 to 18:00
- Friday 14:00 to 16:00
- 3rd group to be announced
in building 082, room 029.
Please hand in solutions to computer exercises through Matlab Grader individually (you should have received an invitation email, email us). Solutions to non-computer exercises can be handed in on paper by groups of maximum 3 persons on Friday's at 10:00 in the lecture or before that in building 102, 1st floor, 'Anbau' (here).

All students must have MATLAB installed on their personal laptop and bring it to the exercise sessions (and the tutorials in the beginning of the semester). The university provides licences.
There is an online (in browser) version of MATLAB. This service is provided by MathWorks and can be accessed with a MathWorks account. We won't be able to provide support for the online version and the exercises may exceed it's capabilities.
Some introductory tutorials are available for your convenience:
