This lecture (MVComp1) is part of the specialization in Computational Physics within the physics masters degree at Heidelberg University. The objectives of this course are to endow students with the capacity to identify and classify common numerical problems, to reach an active understanding of applicable numerical methods and algorithms, to solve basic physical problems with adequate numerical techniques, and to recognize the range of validity of numerical solutions.
by Frauke Gräter and Rüdiger Pakmor.
Examples will include molecular and astrophysics problems.
The lecture takes place weekly, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30-11:00, in INF 227 / SR 1.403/1.404
Exercises will take place on Fridays, in INF 205 / PC-Pool SW 2
