Introduction to Computational Physics

Class Projects completed in 1998

    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 Materials Science 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, 1999) are welcome by email to Joan Adler.

  1. Analysis and presentation of Dielectric Properties of Nanocomposites - Tamar Tepper

    This project is a self-contained matlab program to be used on Windows 97 or Unix machines. An html description can be found here on this web server and the matlab programs and a text description obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server. (More information by email.)

  2. Atomic Simulation of Nucleation in CVD processes - Michal Avinun

    This project is a simulation of nucleation using FORTRAN and PGPLOT on Unix machines. An html description can be found here on this web server and further instructions and the programs obtained by email.

  3. Coupled Oscillators - Lidia Langof

    This project simulates coupled oscillator motion and compare the use of different algorithms to solve the equations. An html description can be found here on this web server and the programs obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server. (More information by email.)

  4. Introduction to Mathematica - Peter Sandev

    This project is an adaption to Technion conditions and from Mathematica2 to Mathematica3 of a set of introductory Mathematica routines developed by Richard Palmer at Duke University. There are also routines used in the Duke Graduate Course om Mathematical Methods. There is a summary on our website but the programs are not avaliable at the moment. (More information by email.)

  5. Rabi Oscillations - Uri Ezra

    This project uses FORTRAN and PGPLOT. An html description can be found here on this web server and the programs obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server. (More information by email.)

  6. Animation of One and Two Dimensional Waves - Ruti Hannan (More information by email.)

    This project was prepared in powerpoint for Windows 95. An html description can be found here on this web server, and the files can be obtained via http from the Computational Physics http server. For some beautiful educational physics web-pages, browse the Blossoms of Science web pages at the Jordan Valley College where Ruti Hannan teaches.

  7. Solution of the Schroedinger Equation in a Realistic Quantum Well - Aleksandra Milovanovich

    This project is a fortran routine with matlab graphics. It provides an example of an implementation of a routine based on Koonin and Meredith's computational Physics book to use Matlab graphics. An html description can be found here on this web server and the programs obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server. (More information by email.)

  8. Computer Simulations for Atoms Inside a Laser Light Potential - Tal Kidan

    This is a project from last year that has been accepted as an article (T. Kidan, J. Adler and A. Ron) in ``Computers in Physics''. A preprint in html can be viewed here, and ps files and programs can be found on our http server in directory pub/preprints/KAR and pub/programs/KAR)

  9. 3D Visualization of percolation clusters - Nir Yefet

    An introduction to percolation theory and examples of the visulaizations can be found here, (More information by email.)

  10. Simulation of Grain Growth Under the Influence of Particles - Mike Lieberthal

    A program written in C for UNIX using the OpenGL graphics library simulating two dimensional grain growth with or without the addition of foreign particles. Details can be found here, and the programs obtained by http from the Computational Physics http server. The program works as is for Silicon Graphics machines. (More information by email.)

Online material is avaliable for the Fall 1997
