Computational Physics: Algorithms and Clusters
PHYS 340
Fall 2007 not offered

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 link computers running the Linux operating system together to make a Beowulf cluster. The majority of material in the course will focus on the most important numerical techniques, which we will implement in weekly exercises. A functional knowledge of Linux/Unix is preferred but not required. This course is also a part of the Certificate in Informatics and Modeling program.
