A little background context before I ask my question: I graduated in May 2009 from a small-ish Northeastern liberal arts university not really known for physics but got really involved with research with a couple of professors while at school, most of which involved Fortran and Mathematica.
I was wondering what are the top PhD grad school schools are for computational physics. It is my understanding from conversations with professors that there is technically "no such thing as computational physics," as in the hard part is obviously the physics then computation is somewhat analogous to experiment. I was recommended nuclear physics as that's computation heavy.
I suppose I'm looking at a program in the intersection between computer science and physics (i.e. a lot of scientific programming).
