Computational Physics I

7.5 credits

We will learn to write and use programs during the course to solve a variety of physics problems. The course is divided into four topics: i) Differential equations (systems) which allows us to describe e.g. motions in the solar system. ii) Partial differential equations, e.g., wave equations, electrostatics. iii) Monte Carlo methods. And iv), statistical methods for fitting experimental data. The course is based on smaller projects where the students are expected to independently define and solve problems within the four subject areas.

Distance – study where you are

Perhaps you would like to study in the Swedish mountains, in a big city, or at home close to family? Many of our programmes and courses are offered in distance format.

Studying at a distance can be done in different ways, either entirely without physical gatherings or with only a few gatherings on campus or at one of our learning centres. The common denominator is that a large part of your studies takes place online. You communicate with the teacher and other students with the help of a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures and online meetings.

The benefit of distance studies is the flexibility, something that is valuable if you want to be free to decide when and where you want to study. Some compulsory elements on you course or programme may take place during office hours, even though they are online.
