An introduction to physical modeling using a computational approach. Taking a computational approach makes it possible to work with more realistic models than what you typically see in a first-year physics class, such as friction and drag.

This course aims to give the student a thorough grounding in the main computational techniques used in modern physics. This is not a text in computing science, nor in programming. It focuses specifically on methods for solving physics problems.

These notes should train you in an algorithmic approach to problems in the sciences, represented here by the unity of three disciplines, physics, mathematics and informatics. This trinity outlines the emerging field of computational physics.
