Computational physics involves the study and implementation of numerical algorithms to solve problems in physics for which a quantitative theory already exists. The need for computational physics arises from the fact many physical problems are either very difficult or impossible to solve exactly. Computational physics allows the problem to be simplified and the solution tested to see how the various simplifications affect the solution and if they adequately model the data concerned. Almost all branches of physics are represented by computational physics including computational mechanics, electrodynamics, fluid dynamics and electromagnetohydrodynamics with several of these of interest to faculty members in the School of Science. Students studying this major follow a rigorous plan of core courses before branching out into more specialized areas of physics.
