PHYS 4810 - Computational Physics

Computational physics studies the implementation of numerical algorithms to solve problems of physics which do not have analytical solutions. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to solve physics problems from a variety of fields under realistic conditions, using modern architectures such as graphical processing units and supercomputers. This course makes extensive use of computers but remains a physics course where students enrich their understanding of physical phenomena. A culminating experience project is required.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: CSCI 1100, PHYS 1100, and PHYS 1200 or permission of instructor.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 4
