About the Course

The aim of the course is to outline modern computational methods to describe the properties and dynamics of continuum systems, such as fluids and gases, electromagnetic fields, and plasmas. The aim is furthermore to exemplify how such methods can be used to calculate the properties of such systems, of importance for a wide range of applications. Furthermore, the course provides a tool box for computational physics applicable to a broad set of problems, of in-terest both in basic and applied research and development. The course provides practice in using Python, C and elements of C++ for solving problems of computa-tional physics.
