NEXT 2 CLASSES
My philosophy about what students should know about Computational Physics.
Translating this into a step-by-step programme.
How to cope with different levels of knowledge.
What they do in the first half of the course.
This has not changed much in 26 years.
This part of the course includes 4 homework exercises about basic algorithms
of numerical algorithms including Visualization as well as an introduction to work on a LINUX computer.
I give a simpler version as a LINUX environment course for new users of our parallel computer.
Then I discuss the second half of the course. I change parts of this every year, to reflect the research directions of the students.
It includes a final homework exercise and the project.
Last year I covered HPC, parallel and GPU coding and ``large codes'' for many topics.
I will discuss projects at the end of the 2nd class in more detail.
