DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Mathematical models have been much in th
e news recently They have been used to make predic
tions of the growth of Covid-19\, to work out wha
t is happening in climate change\, and even to ‘pr
edict’ A-level results. But how do these models w
ork\, how reliable are they\, and can we trust the
m enough to advise government policy. In this talk
I will talk about how mathematical models are con
structed and tested\, how they can be applied and
what their limitations are. The talk will focus on
the application of mathematical models to Covid-1
9 and Climate prediction\, and will include a prac
tical demonstration of chaos.
