LabView and Femlab for (Bio)Physicists – Overview

  • Overview

Programming in LabView and Simulating in Comsol Multiphysics (Bio)Physicists. We offer a hands-on course on programming in Labview - e.g. experiment setups - and finite element simulations of partial differential equations with Comsol Multiphysics (aka Femlab).

Time and Location
Friday 10.15-11.45, Kleiner Physikhörsaal H020

Course is value with 3CP and aimed as a "Schlüsselqualifikation" (Bachelor or Master). The lectures is part of the the Biophysics Program of the Physics Master

-------- Please bring your own Notebook! ---------

If possible, install beforehand a most recent VirtualBox (Opensource) on your operating system platform (Windows,Mac, Linux)
