I'm a 3rd year physics major and my friend is a 3rd year computer science major, and for a bit of fun we want to do some sort of project that will utilize both of our skills. Some sort of computational physics problem seems appropriate, but with my limited knowledge, it seems that a lot of them are somewhat trivial from a CS point of view. That is, they seem to involve very simple algorithms for doing a bunch of repetitive calculations, and don't have much to do with data structures and the sorts of things that computer scientists like. So can I have some examples of computational physics problems, or of ways of approaching them that involve concepts which are "interesting" from both a physics and computer science point of view? It doesn't have to be anything groundbreaking or new, even just trying to recreate some well known result would be alright, we're just doing this for fun. Thanks. Edit: Oops, could I get this moved to Programming and Comp Sci?
