Variational Modelling: Energies, gradient flows, and large deviations
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 64

Description:
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.
