|Title: ||Mathematical modelling of a limited resource.|
|Issue Date: ||Dec-1980|
|Publisher: ||Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation|
|Abstract: ||These notes are for a summer school which will introduce mathematically minded year-12 high school students to aspects of resource modelling. The course considers the application of
(i) mathematics of exponential processes, and
(ii) numerical solution of differential equations to a currently important question - 'when will the world production of crude oil begin to dimish?'
A considerable portion of the summer school is devoted to electronic computing, using
- large scientific digital computers,
- micro-computers, and
- hybrid, analogue-to-digital computers; these are applied to the resource modelling problem and to some simulation processes.|
