Faculties and centres
Computational physics is the study and the implementation of numerical methods to solve problems in physics. This is probably one of the most recent areas in physics and often it is considered as an intermediate discipline between experimental physics and theoretical physics. Computational physics combines knowledge in computer science and mathematics for their application in solving physical problems. Therefore, this class will allow the student to put in practice many of the concepts and understanding acquired in previous years.

The main objective of this class is for the student to learn and use a set of numerical tools so that he/she can apply them for the resolution of physical problems.
- To be able to apply advanced computational methods for the numerical resolution of problems in physics.
- To know which are the appropriate numerical methods to solve different equations in physics.
- To learn how to model a physical system.
