PHY 4611 - Computational Physics

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): PHY 2711, PHY 2811, and MTH 3420, or Permission of instructor.

Description: This course introduces advanced methods of computational physics in a structured and cohesive manner.  The course concentrates on solving complex physical problems, especially systems with no analytic solutions. Several complex physical phenomena are modeled numerically. Topics include nonlinear second-order differential equations associated with Newton’s second law, partial differential equations associated with the wave equation, heat diffusion, Schrödinger’s equation, Laplace’s equation, and methods of fitting and analyzing data, including regression and spectral methods.

University Requirement(s): Senior Experience
