Computational Physics (7.5 ECTS credits)
The course introduces important numerical physical computational methods in three main fields: continuum methods, stochastic methods, and particle and quantum mechanical methods. Numerical computations are implemented in MATLAB. The course content includes the finite element method, molecular dynamics, the Monte Carlo method, and Hartree-Fock and density functional theory.
