Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2024-25

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.
