Office hours: Mondays and Wednesdays 11:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m. (or by appointment).
Course Website:
Monday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in DWE2534
Course Objectives:
By the end of the course, the student should be able to:

Derive detailed mathematical models describing the dynamic behavior of

complex process engineering systems.
Understand the mathematical issues associated with dynamic models consisting of
mixed sets of differential (ordinary or partial) and algebraic equations.
Obtain information about the geometric nature of solutions, understand the
concept of stability, establish the existence of periodic solutions, and investigate
global stability.
Formulate and solve dynamic optimization problems.

Grading System:
Assignments: 40%
Class Project: 40%
Final Exam : 20%
There will be four or five assignments in this course. Late assignments without an
acceptable reason will be penalized.

The projects will be individual projects. The final exam will be a comprehensive oral
exam. More details will be given later in the course.
Throughout this course MATLAB will be used. You are however encouraged to use other
software packages (e.g. GAMS, gPROM, Dymola,etc.).
Textbook and Written Material:
No textbook is required for this course. A large part of the course will be drawn from
journal articles and various books. Notes/handouts will be provided as necessary.
