Computational Physics

PHYS 340
Spring 2021
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Applied Data Science Certificate, Integrated Design, Engineering & Applied Science Minor

This course introduces students to numerical techniques used in modern computational physics. Using the UNIX operating system and its support software as our programming environment, we will write code using the c programming language to implement the basic numerical techniques necessary for solving the majority of physics problems that do not have an analytical solution. Previous experience with UNIX/c is useful but not required.
