Programs in Computational Physics

  1. Dec 1, 2008 #1
    Hi all. This question has been asked previously on this forum but there was no reply I think. Which are the good programs for computational physics? I did (am doing) my Bachelor's and Master's in Aerospace Engineering from IIT Bombay. I got interested in CFD at first, but then my senior thesis is in Computational Electromagnetics. I am generally interested in Computational Physics, Applied Mathematics, High Performance Computing, etc.

    Can someone suggest me good programs in above fields?

    I'll bump this partially in hopes of seeing some answers myself.

    Schools and programs I have been checking out for computational physics include: USC (http://cacs.usc.edu/) - they have a neat program where you can get a PhD in physics while earning an MS in computer science; BU (http://ccs.bu.edu/); Illinois: Urbana-Champaign (http://www.mcc.uiuc.edu/); as well as a couple specific groups at various schools, depending on research interests. For a more math-based approach, perhaps PACM at Princeton (http://www.pacm.princeton.edu/) or Stanford's iCME (http://icme.stanford.edu/).

    Good luck!

    If SIAM approves of those Institutions then you should feel better choosing anyone of those institutions as well. SIAM a trustworthy brand that publishes great books too.
