Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course will provide basics on programming with the focus on the needs of physicists. Programming is essential in many areas of physics ranging from numerical simulations through data analysis to control of scientific equipment.

It is practically impossible to carry out a career in physics or related fields without the need to ever write or understand computer code. The example language used during the course is Python.

Assessment and permitted materials

The course will be assessed via a written module examination held in class.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

50% of the total points at the final exam.

Examination topics

The Course is to be regarded as one, single and inseparable entity together with the associated exercise class 260103-4. The material discussed in class will be put in practise in the exercises, which is the only way to actually learn programming.

Reading list

Literature will comprise of the lecture notes and additional online material announced during the course.
