Last June I presented my Thesis Proposal to the jury of the Computational and Applied Physics Department in the UPC and...it was accepted!!
After the long pause I have had to prepare an overview of all the studied subjects, just to get some scope on what is coming and where we are now. The following diagrams give some idea on how it is:
And with a bit more of detail:
These diagrams derive from the need of disentangling disciplines that more often than seldom get mixed in the literature and make it fairly hard to follow.
The literature I am talking about is that of the computational simulation of physics, where numerical methods meet with very different origins.
