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.

This tutorial will develop the basics ingredients necessary for modeling simple non-linear dynamical systems. The goal is to demonstrate you that you can develop significant insight into the behavior of non-linear systems with just a little math.
