The term modeling refers to the development of a mathematical representation of a physical system while the term simulation refers to the procedure of solving the equations that resulted from model development. The quality or usefulness in a model is measured by its ability to capture the governing physical features of the problem. Here, the expertise of the modeler is useful. The model is amenable to manipulation which would be impossible, too expensive, or too impractical to perform on the system which it portrays. This feature makes it a very useful tool to study system behavior.

Thanks to the support from MathWorks, enrolled students have access to MATLAB for the duration of the course.
I am having difficulty registering for this course on the NPTEL website. I live in the US, and it doesn't want to accept my mobile phone number as a valid number? Confused about this. Also, when clicking "go to class" for some of the courses, I don't get the option to "join" said course.
