Physics Minor - Computational Physics

PHYS 3007  Computational Physics


PHYS 2006 and PHYS 2007


Three hours of lecture per week for one term




Computational Physics is a project-oriented course demonstrates how computers enable us to both broaden and deepen our understanding of physics by increasing the range of mathematical calculations. Students learn how to apply numerical methods and algorithms to problems in physics for different applications in nanotechnology, medicine, etc. Students choose a physical problem, and pose scientific questions, and implement a computer simulation. Students also develop techniques and skills for programming, analysis, and presentation of their results.
