Template Model Building (TMB) is amongst the newest modern tools for efficiently fitting highly parameterized stock assessment and other models with random effects.
TMB is a new tool which supports the same algorithms as AD Model Builder, in which most current assessment models are build. TMB is designed to be very efficient by combining modern, carefully selected, and well suported libraries (e.g,cppAD, R, Eigen, CHOLMOD).
This course will be taught at an advanced level showing how fisheries assessment models can be written and fitted in TMB. The course is intended for those who already code their own assessment models and who are involved in the provision of advice in fisheries assessment.
