Course Description:
The course is a basic course for graduate students majored in chemical engineering and technology. Guiding principle of this course is: based mainly on method; low starting point and large-span; focusing on the advance and practicability of class contents and taking into account the theory system. In addition, this course gives a brief introduction of the numerical algorithm using computer, and mathematical software MATLAB is recommended. The course is mainly about theory of matrix eigenvalue, Fourier transform and fixed solution partial problem of partial differential equation. The aim of this course is to broaden students’ mathematical knowledge, and lay the basis for further quantitative professional study.
