Course Description

This course by Prof. Steve Brunton will provide an in-depth overview of powerful mathematical techniques for the analysis of engineering systems. In addition to developing core analytical capabilities, students will gain proficiency with various computational approaches used to solve these problems. Applications will be emphasized, including fluid mechanics, elasticity and vibrations, weather and climate systems, epidemiology, space mission design, and applications in control.

In this course, we will develop many powerful analytic tools. Equally important is the ability to implement these tools on a computer. The instructor and TAs use Matlab, and all examples in class will be in Matlab.
