0302291 Software Packages in Physics -1
Course Description :This course is an interdisciplinary course that requires the knowledge of basic Physics and Mathematics and utilization of computational and programming techniques to implement a solution. The course introduces a wide selection of computer-powered mathematical tools for doing physics and mathematics problems. It will introduce software packages starting with basic instructions and commands. Students are exposed to the following packages: ( Mathematica, Maple, Matlab, ...etc) in real and complex algebra, trigonometry, linear algebra, differential equations, special functions, and graphics. Some applications to intermediate physics course problems will be addressed including : Optics, Waves and Vibrations, Modern Physics, Thermal Physics,....etc. Document preparation and programming is in the manner of a research paper.
