This is a bachelor course that is obligatory in the physics degree. The aim is to enable the student to use computational tools to model physical problems. This is important to develop an understanding of the problems and to deal with a variety of applications.

In relation to the competence profile of the physics degree it is the explicit focus of the course to:

  • Give the competence to use basic methods from linear algebra to model physical problems and to assess the quality of the results obtained in relation to the phenomena the models describe.
  • Give skills to use MATLAB and Mathematica.
  • Give knowledge and understanding of application of numerical methods.
