Computational Physics and Astronomy Club


    Trapped Fermions                    Computational Astrophysics




Computational Languages Spoken Here



 Computer Language Symbols



We are a community of computational physics and astronomy students and faculty who are interested in computational approaches in our scientific endeavors. Some of us use a common language or are fluent in more than one. But, no matter what programming language you use, or would like to learn, for whatever project you are interested in, we are here to learn from each other, provide resources, motivate each other, and maybe get our hands on an exciting computational research project.

If you are affiliated with the SJSU Physics and Astronomy Department and are interested in joining the club, please send an email to

    Our very first meeting was held on Tuesday March 17, 2015

    We are planning to continue holding meetings to create a forum where we can talk about
    our computational projects and challenges, and to share methods and ideas with each
    other. The meetings are held in the Phy/Astro Simulation and Visualization Lab (Sci 249).

People only become computer programmers if they’re obsessive about details, crave power over machines, and can bear to be told day after day exactly how stupid they are.”
