Computational Physics7.5 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 or equivalent. The course content includes molecular dynamics, the Monte Carlo method, and Hartree-Fock and density functional theory.
Progressive specialisation: A1F (has second‐cycle course/s as entry requirements)
Education level: Master's level
Admission requirements: Numerical Methods, Quantum Physics II, Solid State Physics, and Mathematical Physics II, or equivalent.
Selection is usually based on your grade point average from upper secondary school or the number of credit points from previous university studies, or both.
This course is included in the following programme
- Master of Science in Engineering Physics (studied during year 4)
- Master of Science in Engineering, Degree Programme in Engineering Physics (studied during year 1)
