PHYS 100 KS - Computational Physics and Engineering


This course is a comprehensive introduction to the application of computational techniques to physics and engineering. It provides direct experience in using computers to model physical systems and it develops a minimum set of algorithms needed to create physics and engineering simulations on a computer. Such algorithms are employed to solve nontrivial, real world problems through the investigation of seven major projects. Students will use computer mathematical software such as Maple, Mathematica, or Matlab. No prior computer course is assumed.

Prerequisite(s): PHYS033L KS  , PHYS034L KS ; or PHYS030L KS , PHYS031L KS ; and MATH 030 , MATH 031 .
Course Credit: 1.0
Offered: Every spring
