PHYS 25450 Computational Physics

Introduction to computational methods used to solve problems in physics. Numerical techniques for the analysis of experimental data and the solution of ordinary and partial differential equations will be studied. These numerical methods will be applied to the solution of a variety of problems that arise in classical physics. Visualization and simulation techniques will be studied and the power of these methods to enhance physical understanding will be emphasized. Prerequisites: PHYS 25230 and PHYS 25231 and CSIS 44141.  (S, odd years)
