Basic methods in numerical analysis will be oerviewed in the context of various themes in Chemical Engineering, such as mass-balances, thermodynamics, separation, flow in a channel, correlations, heat transfer and reactors. The numerical implementation in Matlab and Polymath will include code-writing and algorithmic elements.
