Overview of the course.

MATLAB is available on the computers at Chalmers. The free software GNU Octave is a good substitute for Matlab. It can be found on the Chalmers start-CD or down-loaded from the web, see installation instructions here. It is strongly recommended that you install this on your pc (if you have one)!
Another alternative is the program COMSOL Script, which is similar to Matlab. We will soon (week 4??) be able to distribute CDs with a student license. This program is free to use for students at Chalmers according to our license.

Note: Matlab test in week 6. Exercise test.
