FIT3139 2023-S1: Final project (Due by 11:55pm, Monday, 24 July 2023) This supplementary assessment has the purpose of assessing all learning outcomes in the unit. The learning outcomes are as follows: 1. Explain and apply the process of computational scientific model building, verification and interpretation; 2. Analyse the differences between core classes of modelling approaches (Numerical versus Analytical; Linear versus Non-linear; Continuous versus Discrete; Deterministic versus Stochastic); 3. Evaluate the implications of choosing different modelling approaches; 4. Rationalise the role of simulation and data visualisation in science; 5. Apply all of the above to solving idealisations of real-world problems across various scientific disciplines. What to submit The final report will consist of two parts. A video presentation and a final written report. We also require all the source code, appropiately documented via comments as well as the slides used for the presentation. The weights on the different sections of the report are futher discussed below. Follow these procedures to submit this assignment The assignment must be submitted online via Moodle, and should follow the following procedure: • Accept the Electronic Plagiarism Statement for this Assignment. All your scripts/program will be scanned using MOSS (a plagiarism detection software). Read Monash Student Academic Integrity policy for consequences of plagiarism. • All your scripts and reports MUST contain your name and student ID. – You are free to program the assignment in either MATLAB or Python. – Your submitted archive must extract to a directory named as your student ID. – This directory should contain all elements of the submission including ∗ The report (in PDF format) – no longer than 5 pages in total. ∗ The source code for the model and analysis, appropriately documented with comments. ∗ The video of your presentation in MP4 format – no longer than 5 minutes in total. ∗ The slides used for your presentation in PDF format • Submit your zipped file electronically via Moodle. 1 Task description To demonstrate all learning outcomes, you will develop an extension of a model discussed in the classroom. An extension addresses the same problem, but adds or relaxes specific assumptions about the model. For example, taking a deterministic model and introducing assumptions to do a stochastic analysis, or providing stochastic analysis for a simulation. Your extension should address the same problem, but contain some different assumptions that may or may not lead to different conclusions — an analysis should be presented comparing the results of the original model and the extended model. The model extension should be explained, interpreted an analysed, and it should allow you to showcase at least one of the following techniques: • Markov chains • Montecarlo simulation • Heuristics • Game theory Your extension should address one modelling question, and use the algorithms, techniques and visu- alisations discussed in the clasroom to answer those questions. Submission structure Report structure Your report should contain the following sections: Section 1: Specification table Fill the following table. Base model One sentence description of the base model Question being addressed. One paragraph description on how assumptions are modified and the nature of the extension Technique 1. Extension assumptions Techniques showcased Modelling question 1 Section 2: Introduction • Learning outcomes 1, 5. 20% of project final mark • Identify the problem you want to solve and its motivation, describe what the extension will be and identify questions your model will answer. In other words, this section takes the information in the specification table and develops it providing more detail and a motivation of your questions, and how your techniques are appropriate. • Write clearly. Your mark is based on what we can understand so spend time crafting the text. 2 Section 3: Model description • Learning outcomes 1, 2, 5. • Specify model extension details and list assumptions for both the original model and the extension model. Determine the class of model and analysis you are presenting (Numerical versus Analytical; Linear versus Non-linear; Continuous versus Discrete; Deterministic versus Stochastic). Be sure to describe in detail any algorithms or mathematical results or derivations you may use. • Be clear and help the reader as much as you can. Section 4: Results • Learning outcomes 2, 3, 4, 5. • Interpret and analyse the results of your extended model, including visualisation of results. You should explain how you arrive at your results. All figures should be discussed, explained and interpreted and your report should include at least 2 Figures. The results and figures should support how you are answering the questions you have chosen to answer. • Be clear and help the reader as much as you can. Section 5: List of algorithms and concepts • Learning outcomes 2, 5. • List of algorithms and concepts used in the unit that play a role in your model and interpretation. Video presentation You should submit a presentation where you discuss your extended model. The presentation should be no longer that 10 minutes, and use slides to enhance the description of the model and the explanation of your results. It is suggested the presentation keep a similar structure to that of the report. A simple procedure to record the presentation using zoom can be found here: https://www.youtube. com/watch?v=P6cTbnUPwfY Source code All code should be submitted and appropriately commented. It will be checked for correctness and be part of the marking in the model section (if the code is used to produce results, or in the results section if the code is used to analyze results). Clarity is in your best interest. You can use any of the standard libraries we used in the class as long as you can explain what the library is doing. The assessment will be marked as PASS or FAIL. Plan ahead and good luck.
