22.107 Computational Nuclear Science and Engineering


Class Info

Develops practical scientific computing skills with applications in radiation physics, reactor engineering and design, nuclear materials, fusion, etc. Topics include compiling/profiling/time and memory complexities/debugging, solvers of ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations, error versus stability, and pre-and post-processing. Includes a survey of visualization and parallel computing and case studies in quantum mechanics, neutron diffusion and transport, simple CFD, and radiation cascade simulations. Assignments require programming in one or several languages of choice; some MATLAB-free assignments also required.
