Jalandhar May 3 (Jaswinder Singh Azad)- Kanya Maha Vidyalaya (Autonomous) organized an extension lecture on the basics of computational physics and its applications in various fields. The lecture was organized by PG Department of Physics. Dr. Vandana Luthra, Professor, Gargi College, New Delhi was the resource person for the lecture. The lecture was attended by students and faculty members from PG department of Physics. Dr. Luthra commenced her talk by giving a brief overview of computational physics, explaining how it has become an integral part of modern-day research in physics.
She further elaborated on the various applications of computational physics, including quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and experimental Physics & also highlighted the significance of computational physics in solving complex scientific problems that cannot be solved through traditional analytical methods. She also gave several examples of how computational physics has been used to solve real-world problems, such as predicting the behavior of resistance of different electronic components under varying potentials, designing new experiments, and simulating the formation of galaxies.
Dr. Luthra emphasized on the importance of collaboration between physicists and computer scientists
Throughout her lecture, Dr. Luthra emphasized on the importance of collaboration between physicists and computer scientists, as the two fields are increasingly becoming interdependent. She also encouraged students to pursue a career in computational physics, given its vast applications and potential for innovation. The lecture ended with an interactive session, where attendees had the opportunity to ask Dr. Luthra questions about her research and the future of computational physics.
Principal Prof. (Dr.) Atima Sharma Dwivedi averred that this kind of event gave an opportunity to the students to have a better understanding of the basics of computational physics and its impact on modern-day research. Madam Principal lauded the efforts of P.G. Department of Physics for organizing such meaningful lecture cum interactions.
