PHYS 7680 - Computational Physics

(crosslisted) ASTRO 7690  
Spring. 3 credits. S-U grades only.

Co-meets with PHYS 4480 .


Covers numerical methods for ordinary and partial differential equations, linear algebra and eigenvalue problems, integration, nonlinear equations, optimization, and fast Fourier transforms. Find out how and why the "black-box" numerical routines you use work, how to improve and generalize them, and how to fix them when they don't. Based on the text Numerical Recipes by William H. Press, Saul A. Teukolsky, William T. Vetterling, and Brian P. Flannery.
