Course content
- motivation - the areas in which computer simulations are used, the current state - basic categories of the problem and suitable algorithms for their solution - selected numerical methods and their principles - overview of available software (commercial and freeware applications), presentation of work in the system - computer modeling of selected physical phenomena using computer (according to listener's interest)

Learning activities and teaching methods
Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book), Individual preparation for exam
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to obtain a basic overview in the area of computer technology utilization to predict the behavior of selected systems. The graduate will have a basic idea of the available software (commercial and freeware applications) and the possibility of using it to solve the given problem. The student will meet the basic numerical methods and computational algorithms. He / She will be able to solve selected simple problems.
The student will acquire knowledge and skills in computer modeling in various fields of physics and technology.
Prerequisites
