PHY494 — Topic: Computational Methods in Physics

PHY494 — Topic: Computational Methods in Physics

The course provides an introduction to using the computer as a tool to solve problems in physics. Students will learn to analyze problems, select appropriate numerical algorithms, implement them using Python, a programming language widely used in scientific computing, and critically evaluate their numerical results. Problems will be drawn from diverse areas of physics.

PHY315 — Quantum Physics II

PHY315 — Quantum Physics II

PHY 315 is the second semester of the quantum physics sequence for physics majors. The goal of the course is to give you a quantitative understanding of the quantum mechanical behavior of a single particle and of many particles at the atomic scale. Together with an introduction to the theory of special relativity you will acquire core ideas and concepts of modern physics that offer a fundamentally different view of the world than classical physics.
