Computational Physics MPhys

Course Overview - Computational Physics MPhys

The close relationship between physics and high performance computing worldwide is embodied in the Computational Physics degree programme.

Most theoretical problems are now sufficiently complex that they cannot be solved by mathematics alone.

As experimentation becomes increasingly difficult and expensive, computer simulation has become established as the most practical way to understand complex phenomena such as:


* turbulence


* nuclear reactors and weapons


* climate change


These are the areas where computat...
