This course is a topical survey of research methodologies that in the Spring 2017 term will focus on computing and programming methods broadly applicable for graduate students who are engaged in doctoral level research in the physical sciences and engineering. With the objective of providing useful tools and a perspective on how advanced scientific research is conducted, we will cover three topics in roughly 5 week sequential segments:

  • Python and javascript for data analysis, instrument control, and image processing (Kielkopf)
  • Advanced Python (Freelon)
  • Root (Banerjee)

Some on-line course materials are here:

This is a required course for students in the doctoral program in Physics & Astronomy.
