**Welcome to the Techniques of Computational Physics
course web page. This course is offered Fall Semester 1999. Here we will
provide information about the course as well as materials. Both lecture
materials and other background materials will be provided as the course
developes.**

- Hand-outs on various computational physics methods will be provided.
- When possible, links in this web page to the lectures and selected hand-outs will be made as the term proceeds.
- A bibliography of some key references will be provided.

- Unix
- Numerical Methods--differentiation, integration, root finders
- Logistic Map and Chaos
- Some Numerical Methods for Ordinary differential equations
- Hyperbolic Partial Differential Equations
- Introdution to Computational Fluid Dynamics
- The Schrodinger Equation--Time evolution of the Wave Function
- Elliptic Partial Differential Equations
- The Gravitational N-Body Problem--a few basic methods

- Fortran programming as used in all programming of the computational physics. There is a good treatment of fortran 90 for the fortran 77 programmer which you should consult when needed.

There may be other topics that can be covered. We shall tailor the topics somewhat to the interests of the students and instructor.
