Introduction to Computational Physics - Class Projects

    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, Materials Science, Computer Science, Chemical and Mechanical 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, 2014) are welcome by email to Joan Adler.
    An edited subset of these projects together with some from before 1997 can be found here.

  19. Simulation of Molecular Structure of Surfaces - Michael Monine, Chemical Engineering. This project models a surface phase transition on Pt(110) catalyst in a carbon monoxide oxidation reaction. Reactions of this type represent systems far from thermodynamic equilibrium in which one can observe rate oscillations, spatiotemporal patterns and chaos. The goal of this project is to simulate the transition from 1x1 surface state to 1x2 state (and vice versa) governed by the adsorbate (CO) on the Pt(110) surface. It uses a c program that can be obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server or from the web pages of the project. The graphics for this project uses the X interface and it is a good example of their use. More information here and by email .

  20. Chaos of a Dripping Faucet - Yossi Weinstein, Physics. This project simulates the time intervals between every two drops as a function of the drop interval finding strange attractors by creating Poincare maps, and trying different parameters like drop mass critical speed and flow rate. A Runge-Kutta algorithm is used in order to solve the motion equations involved. The algorithm is written in fortran and the graphics use matlab. The program can be obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server or from the web pages of the project. More information here and by email .
