Additional information / Pre-requisites

All students are required to have basic training in programming, be familiar with at least one of the following languages: Python, C, C++, Java. Matlab is not sufficient.
For physics students, this module will be recognized in the elective module area. It is suggested that students have gone through the module Computational Molecular Physics or do that in parallel.
For mathematics students this module is a "Forschungsprojekt". Mathematics students should have read CoMa I+II and Numerik I. close


Up to 10 master students of physics, mathematics, and computer science will collaborate on a software development project from the realm of computational physics and scientific computing. We will specify the desired features and behaviour of the software to be developed, depending on the size and composition of the group – a typical project will include generation and analysis of numerical/simulation data as well as data management and storage. To meet the different backgrounds of physicists, mathematicians, and computer scientists, the project will include aspects of theoretical physics (understanding theory and physical models), numerics (such as simulation aspects) as well as pure informatics (such as data processing, database design and development, software architecture design). We will meet once a week to discuss progress and problems. Students will self-organize (with our assistance) in terms of dividing work and presenting results.
