PHYS 355 - Computational Physics

Credits: 3

The use of computers in physics has grown enormously over the past few decades, to the point where computers play a central role in virtually every new physics discovery. From particle physics and astrophysics to quantum computing and biophysics, calculations on computers have become one of the most indispensable tools of scientists today. This course provides an introduction to the solution of physics problems using computers. Assuming no previous programming experience, the course will introduce the basic indeas and programming skills of computational physics and help develop skills to solve problems in all areas of physics.
