  • These are lecture notes for various Summer and Winter schools that I have given. The notes describe the methodology called Variational Modelling, and focus on the application to the modelling of gradient-flow systems. I describe the methodology itself in great detail, and explain why this is a rational modelling route. A central example is diffusion, in combination with various other processes, and a large part of the notes are devoted to this phenomenon. In the Variational Modelling… CONTINUE READING
