Listed below are the numerical topics to be covered in the course. These will be covered in the order that they come up when modeling a particular process.

I. Solve Single Algebraic Equations

II. Solve Sets of ODE-IVP

III. Solve Sets of ODE-BVP

IV. Solve Sets of PDE

V. Curve fitting and Non-linear Parameter Estimation

We will use MATLAB, Excel, PDE Toolbox (Matlab's way to solve PDEs), and FIDAP (a computational fluid dynamics [CFD] program).
