NumPhys is a general course in Computational Physics, with applications in Statistical Physics and Condensed Matter. We cover the many algorithms used in modern many-body problems: molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo (classical and quantum), exact diagonalization and optmization in complex landscapes. Implications to computer science are also discussed. We focus on algorithms and physics, not on programming and heavy numerics. The theoretical lecture is followed by a tutorial introducing many concrete numerical exercises. You will have to hand in 3 homeworks.
