APHY 577 Computational Methods

Meeting Times: MWF 09:20 AM - 10:15 AM

Location: PH0225

Number of credits: 3

This is a one semester Computational Physics course. Ideally, at the end of this course, the student will be able to devise an algorithm for a given problem, write and debug the corresponding code, analyze the results and present them in a way that conveys the essential message that they contain.

**How
computers are extending the reach of
science: **Brief overview of general
subject of Computational Science and
Computational Physics followed by hands -on
activity to develop a model and algorithm for
a simulation of a predator-prey model. The
workshop is open to all science teachers.

__Introduction to Quantum
Optics__

Coming soon. An introduction to the interaction of light and matter from the early first steps to current applications in Quantum Information Processing and Quantum Simulators.

__Coming soon. An exploration of Many Body Physics and diagrammatic perturbation theory with an inclination towards its Condensed Matter applications.__

**Many Body Physics**

__Future course that will explore the general principles of quantum physics from a conceptual point of view. This will be a general education course for the honors college and other interested students. The emphasis will be placed on applications of quantum physics that are in use in common technologies.__
