The aim of this course is to make you familiar with the basic concepts behind programming. For this we will make use of the Matlab environment. Matlab is a scientific computer program, which allows you to visualize data, preform matrix operations, and write scripts and functions, etc. It is used in many research groups for data analysis or for calculations. At the end of this course, you should be able to read code, write code to solve chemical problems, and to understand how you should set up your program in a clear and clever way.
