LECTURE NOTES
Old notes from the last time I taught the course, if you'd like to read ahead. I don't recommend printing this out.
Updated notes for the course.
COMPUTER CODE
We will use MATLAB extensively in this course, and you will learn how to use it as we proceed. A basic introduction will not be given, but here are a few resources that will help you learn the basics. First, here's a link to a nice book chapter Intro to MATLAB for Egineering Studens from a course at Northwestern; second, here's a link to some lectures in Power Point format Intro to MATLAB for a course at MIT; third, here's some materials presented in html format MATLAB tutorial from a professor at Michigan Tech; and last, here's a web tutorial MATLAB tutorial created by MATLAB that I haven't watched. There are many more introductions to MATLAB that can be found via a Google search.
