Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
Aims
After completion of this course the student is able to;
  1. Setup and apply computational models with the use of numerical techniques in the field of Physics
Content
This course can be done for 2.5 or 5 EC. Registration for both variants is via this course. During the course, you indicate to the teacher how many EC you would like to participate for.

The Computational Physics course will illustrate through guided practical sessions how one solves physics problems on the computer. For a number of selected topics, the student will set up a computational “experiment”. He/she will develop an appropriate computational strategy for each given problem, implement the needed numerical techniques, analyze the results and the correctness of the model regarding the chosen
computational parameters, and describe/interpret the physical phenomena.

Subjects in 2.5 EC Computational Physics part:
  • Excitons – Numerical solution of the radial Schrödinger equation,
  • Magnetism, Ising model – Monte Carlo simulations.
Additional Subjects for the expansion to the 5.0 EC Computational Physics:
  • Wave propagation – Transmission of electron waves through (resonant) tunneling devices,
  • Non-linear and linear physics problems – Poisson-Boltzmann equation, eigenvalue problems, molecular Rotations,
  • Diffusion – Brownian motion, random walks.
