Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The main objective of the course is presentation of mathematical modeling and computer-based methods such as: simulation and optimization, applied to the support of the decisions in animal management. The surveyed optimization techniques will include: linear and dynamic programming, hierarchic Markov processes, Bayesian networks and influence diagrams. Examples of the decision problems from cattle (dairy and beef), pig, poultry and wild animals’ management will be given.
