Physics Research Software Porting Project

Bored with homework? There is an immediate opening with Professor
Thomas Coan (Physics) for a student interested in undergraduate
research.  The work is to port existing pedagogical physics simulation
code from Pascal to a modern computer language like JAVA or c++. In
the process, the student would learn modern software translation
tools, something about video drivers and likely improve their overall
computational savvy. Additionally, they would have the satisfaction of
having their work used by other undergraduates. The candidate should
know either JAVA or c++. A knowledge of PASCAL is not required. It is
desirable, but not necessary, to have done reasonably well in
introductory physics at SMU. Interested students can contact Prof Coan
by email ( or phone (214 768 2497).
