CSCI 111 - Diving into Computer Science Research: Modeling Plasmas

Plasma televisions, plasma lights, the heat around the space shuttle and communication blackout caused by plasma, laser treatments in medicine, and production of microchips for computers are just a few applications of plasmas that have become a big part of our lives.  Students will learn about plasmas by developing and studying mathematical models that explain the experiments and help to obtain plasmas with certain properties.  Students will take part in original research.

Note: The year long course is 0.5 unit per semester, and the full year is necessary to complete the research project.  CSci 110 does not satisfy any requirement of the Computer Science major.
