About

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.

Prerequisites and selection

Requirements

Bachelors degree in physics or equivalent. Prior knowledge in computational physics and numerical analysis through advanced level courses is recommended. Applicants must prove their knowledge of English: English 6/English B from Swedish Upper Secondary School or the equivalent level of an internationally recognized test, for example TOEFL, IELTS.

Selection

Selection is based upon the number of credits from previous university studies, maximum 165 credits.
