research area which combines computer science and physics?

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

research area which combines computer science and physics?

Postby spsrao » Tue Nov 16, 2010 8:05 am

Hi
i completed master's in physics with electronics as specialization.then i also completed M.Tech in Computer science and engineering .That means i completed master degrees in physics as well as computer science.i want to do p.hd in the area which combines physics and computer science.i know some areas like
1) computational physics
2)sensor technology
3)modeling and simulation
4)quantum computing
which area is better to go?and anybody know the research areas which connected with basic sciences with computer science?

applied physics thinks applied physics is the answer to every question!

Haha, you are right. But actually I think computational physics is normally a part of applied physics. This can involve a great deal of parallel computing and algorithms. But the goals are towards simulating some physical phenomenon.
