CS 395T Course Outline

This course shall dwell on appropriate computational  geometry models of  physical domains tailored to the efficiencies of  computer  modeling and simulation of  natural  and physical phenomena.

Class  shall meet on Mondays 2:00 - 5:00pm in ETC 2.132 


You will be graded on the successful completion and presentation of  an assigned project. There shall also be two reports due:
