PHY 321 I - Computational Methods in Physics


An introduction to the methods of computer simulation in physics. The course is project-based with topics drawn primarily from classical mechanics, including: single particle motions, oscillatory systems, few-body problems, chaotic motion, and random processes. Emphasis is on constructing mathematical models based on physical principles and designing algorithms to implement these models in a computer simulation.
