About the Course

The aim of the course is to outline modern computational methods and schemes providing challenges for the future and to develop practical experience in carrying out high performance computing. The course introduces numerical methods and new areas of physics that can be studied with these methods. It gives examples of how physics can be applied in a much broader context than usually discussed in the traditional physics undergraduate curriculum and it teaches structured programming in the context of doing science.
