Courses: Computational Physics (PHYSH304B01)

Spring 2012

An introduction to the methods and problems of computational physics. The course explores areas of physics which require computation for their study including: effects of air resistance and rotation in Newtonian mechanics; fields and potentials in electromagnetism; simulation of nonlinear systems and chaos; stochastic algorithms and statistical mechanics.

Prerequisites: Jr. standing. Physics 213 and either CMSC 105 or extensive experience with a programming language or consent.
