Numerical Methods in Physics

  • Number of credits 7.5 Credits

About the course

The course is aimed at solving physics problems in electrodynamics, quantum physics, theoretical mechanics and solid state physics by computer calculations. The numerical methods are: Fast Fourier Transform, reduction of a symmetric matrix to tridiagonal form, eigenvalues and eigenvectors to a tridiagonal matrix. Methods to solve ordinary differential equations: Runge Kutta, Leap frog, Richardson extrapolation, Bulirsch-Stoer, Predictor-Corrector. Two-point boundary value problems.

The course can also be included in the subject area of computational science & engineering.
