Course Information
Mon. Wed. 10:30 am  12:00 pm, Location: CHBE 304 This course requires you to write computer codes and solve problems numerically. In the past, most students have used MATLAB, although some used Fortran and Visual Basic. We will not have time to review programming languages, and you should do it on your own if needed. Note the freely downloadable, opensource MATLAB clone Octave.
