Introduction to Computational Physics

Class Projects completed in 1999

    These projects formed 70 percent of the grade for the course ``Introduction to Computational Physics'' . Some are based on the students research projects (in the Departments of Physics and Chemical Engineering), some on educational applications and others on suggestions from Physics Department and other researchers. All include computer graphics and most are designed for interactive use. Suggestions for projects for the next session of this course (Spring, 2000) are welcome by email to Joan Adler.

    This page is still in development. Please report on mistakes.

  1. 1-D Modeling of Plasma Filled Diode - Alexander Dunayevski

    This project solves the problem of the dynamics of the plasma boundary in a planar diode with a plasma cathode, using a c program that can be obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server. More information here and by email .

  2. Light Passing thru Turbulence - Ilia Merderfeld

    A description of the problem and of the matlab programs are here . More information by email. The matlab routines can be obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server.

  3. Simulation of Spontaneous Vortex Formation in a Superconductor passing a ``relaxed 2D-bubble collision''. - Raz Carmi

    These programs are not yet released for public use, but a description can be found here . More information by email

  4. Protein Folding - Erez Dekel

    This project presents a simple model for protein folding that enables the user to select different amino acids and bond angles and then anneal the protein into its folded state. The programs are a combination of matlab and c and provide a good example of interfacing between matlab and c. They can be downloaded by http from the Computational Physics http server. A description is given here and more information can be obtained by email.

  5. OpenGL/Mesa Description of the three-dimensional Geometry of a System for Crystal Growth - Arye Meir

    In this project 3d visualization with the OpenGl or Mesa library is implemented to visualize the three-dimensional geometry of a system for crystal growth. A full description can be found here . The programs are in fortran and c and can be downloaded by http . More information by email .

  6. Unstructured Multidomain grid generation and visualization using OpenGL/Mesa and MPI - Oleg Weinstein

    A full description can be found here . More information by email from the Computational Physics http server.

  7. Capillary Infiltration........ - Shaul Avraham

    (More information by email from the Computational Physics http server.

  8. Simulation of the Electric Field in a System of a Rough Surface Sample and a Ball Anode - Noam Koenigsfield

    This project calculates the electric field present in a typical field emission setup and the current vs. voltage based on the calculated field following the Fowler-Nordhaim model. More information here and by email . The matlab programs can be downloaded by http .

  9. Crosstalk Simulation - Lior Shkedy

    This is a Matlab interactive routine. A brief description can be found here. More information by email.
