MENG 31100 — Math Methods in Molecular Engineering
taught in the quarters of Autumn 2018, Autumn 2019, Autumn 2020
Course description:
This course provides an overview of the general mathematical framework required for the further study of the basic theories (e.g. thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, transport) of molecular engineering. The contents of this course mainly include differential equations, statistics, complex analysis and integral transforms, which are illustrated in the context of common problems in diffusion, heat conduction, particle transfer, chemical reactions, etc. This course will lay the mathematical foundations for the further study in other thematic core courses for the Materials Systems area, as well as in future research activities.
