Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Introduction to computational problems in physics with emphasis on fundamental concepts in classical and quantum mechanics (Newton equation, Maxwell equations, Schrödinger equation). The course provides a comprehensive introduction to the basics methods and algorithms of computational physics from a multidisciplinary perspective, merging together fundamental physics, mathematics and computer sciences concepts (including machine learning) conveyed in the language of a natural scientist. Using several examples, the course will illustrate step-by-step how to construct computer programs to carry out simulations and solve realistic problems.

Assessment and permitted materials

On-line oral examination using Big Blue Button or, if necessary, alternative online tools.

Oral discussion optionally combined with discussion written exercises (including computational exercises)
