Description: This course and its second part in the Spring semester will cover mathematical concepts that are at the heart of mathematical modeling in Chemical Engineering. Machine calculations are indispensable for studying the mathematical models in realistic applications, while classical, ana- lytical techniques applied to simplified models serve to strengthen one’s intuition. In this course, we will learn both the analytical techniques and also complementary numerical methods. For the latter part, programming literacy is essential. This requires gaining proficiency in (1) the programming language, an aspect that involves learning the grammar and the syntax of the language, and (2) computational thinking, an aspect that is independent of the programming language and is a skill that is broadly applicable to all problem solving and analysis. We will study all these aspects with applications in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. If registering for CHBE 302, you must register for CHBE 301.
