What are the applications of physics in computer
There are two major applications of computers in physics.
The first is data collection and manipulation for literally thousands of
experiments from high energy physics to temperature determination in ultra
low temperature experiments.
The second application which is also huge is the entire field of
computational physics which includes electronic structure calcations, atomic
theory, statistical physics, and computer simulation of various physical
phenomena such as weather prediction, global climate change etc.
