Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In one of the major paradigm shifts in physics in the past half century, Computational Physics, the application of purely computer-based methods to the solution of physical problems, has established itself as an independent "third methodology", in addition to the conventional approaches, Experimental and Theoretical Physics. Like its sister disciplines, Computational Physics is a method, rather than a specific subfield of physics, and thus is not limited to any particular area: Applications range from tests of approximate theoretical methods (by providing numerically exact results for well-chosen model systems) to replacement/extension of laboratory experiments to extreme space and time scales or physical conditions. Thanks to the continuous increase in computer power, more and more sophisticated physical models may be simulated in detail and their properties investigated at will.
The first part of this two-semester course, which aims at depth rather than breadth, offers an introduction to the following topics:
(Fast) Fourier Transform
Finite Difference Equations
Partial Differential Equations
Solution of Large Systems of Equations
Finite Elements
Monte Carlo Methods.
