Course: PHYS 365. Experimental Physics I (2)
Preparatory: MATH 250, MATH 280; PHYS 227, PHYS 227L; Recommended Corequisite or Preparatory: PHYS 389. Introduction to computational physics with application to topics including dynamical systems, celestial mechanics, climate science, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, and other topics chosen by the instructor. Students are trained to use constructs, such as variables, loops, branching, and functions, in a modern programing language. Concurrently, students use these skills to implement basic numerical procedures to solve physical and mathematical problems.
