Introduction:  real models, mathematical models, and the model
building process. Classification of models and examples of model
building: biological population dynamics, Mendelian genetics, social
choice, scheduling and allocation. Markov chains and related
stochastic models.  Models for decision making: mathematical
programming, scheduling, networks, and models for constrained
optimization. Applications to problems arising in the social, life,
and management sciences.
