This workshop will be a 3-hour hands-on session, intended to be a guided learning experience on how to tackle Physics problems using the computer algebra Maple.
Students and faculty are welcome to attend. Topics will cover basic operations as well as advanced/involved General Relativity and Classical Field Theory computations. There will be 10 sections, the first half will provide an introduction to Maple, and the second half will cover several Physics and math topics, starting with analytical mechanics and tensors and finishing with general relativity and field theory. Prior experience in Maple is not required.
Attendees should bring their own laptop with Maple installed. Complimentary copies of Maple will be emailed prior so attendees can download and install Maple on their laptops.
In addition to this workshop, Edgardo-Cheb Terrab will also present a talk on Computer Algebra for theoretical Physics on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.
There is no registration fee to attend this workshop.
Event to be reopened later in 2018.
