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.
This course contains occasions that are included in a degree programme at Umeå university and applies only to those of you who are admitted to the programme. You will recieve information about application times and what applies to you from your institution.
