ES 103 Systems I
The systems approach is introduced and applied across various contexts. Systems concepts, including sinks, sources, stocks, and feedback, are used in understanding and modeling a wide range of applications including systems dealing with fluid, heat, electrical, environmental, ecological, and economic phenomena, among others. Using conservation laws and analogies between various types of systems, system behaviors are modeled to approximate relationships between system inputs and outputs. The MATLAB numerical computing environment will be employed for modeling systems and learning structured programming.
