Computational Physics: Algorithms and Clusters

PHYS 340
Spring 2016
Section: 01  
Certificates: Applied Data Science, Informatics and Modeling

The aim of this course is to introduce students to both numerical techniques and the 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 the essential components of the C programming language. 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.
