Computational Physics


The computational physics laboratory has a strong history of producing graduates at all levels including the doctorate. Computational physics projects have included: relativistic scattering, black hole formation, atmospheric waves and oscillations, DNA sequencing, cellular electroporation, fluid dynamics, and electromagnetic scattering from rough surfaces. Members of computational physics group have used standard professional software packages as well as designing special customized codes for particular applications.
