Computational Physics

Computational Science is used everywhere: in mobile phones, cars, health care, transport, and weather forecasts. Modelling and simulations have an ever-increasing role in science, and they are pivotal in the analysis, interpretation and exploitation of Big Data in multidisciplinary challenges. As a research field, Computational Physics is the most fundamental branch of computational science. Broadly speaking, computational physics seeks for knowledge of the universe by implementing physical laws to methods, sofware and numerics. Simulations are then used to predict new physical phenomena and to explain experimental results.
