PHYS 639 - Computations in PhysicsCredits: (3)
An introduction to applying computational and numerical techniques to solve problems of interest to physicists. Topics include the application of computational analysis and solution to physical problems in both classical, and quantum physics including particle structure and motion, interaction of particles with fields, and model building for simulation of physical phenomena. A practicum is an integral part of the course. Students will use both personal computers and advanced workstations.
One hour lecture, two hours of computer lab per week.
Prerequisite: PHYS 532.
