Modeling, Simulation, and Design of Chemical and Biological Systems


After the introduction of the basic building blocks of MATLAB and the fundamentals of numerical analysis with an eye on solving scalar and differential equations in Chapter 1, we now introduce mathematical models in chemical and biological engineering1. Our subsequent chapters will combine these two areas by introducing models for specific chemical and biological processes and finding detailed numerical solutions via MATLAB. This chapter is quite short and condensed. Any reader or student who wants to gain a deeper insight into model formulation should consult the literature on math modeling in the Resources appendix.
