|Certificates: Informatics and Modeling|
The aim of this course is to introduce students to both numerical techniques and the computer hardware and software used in modern computational physics. In the first part of the course, we will learn how to work with computers running the Linux operating system and how those computers can be linked together to make a Beowulf cluster. The majority of material in the course will focus on the most important numerical techniques that we will implement in weekly exercises. A functional knowledge of Linux/Unix is preferred but not required.
Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning
Logical and quantitative reasoning are employed to construct and numerically evaluate models of our world.
