In computational physics and chemistry, there is often a need to perform linear algebra operations with large matrices. As researchers move to more realistic models, the size of the model grows, and so does the size of the matrices, slowing the computations down.
A Software Carpentry workshop will be held at the U-M Medical School May 2 and 3. These workshops are free and open to anyone on campus; the sessions are suitable for researchers in the humanities and social sciences. Register here.
This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
Who: The course is aimed at graduate students, postdocs, and other researchers across the University of Michigan. You don’t need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.
Where: Furstenberg 2710 (2nd floor of Med Sci II).
