Thanks for your interest into Debian and specifically science packages.
I'd recommend reading the debian-science@lists.debian.org mailing list
(I have set Reply-To to this list!) where question like these would
probably fit better.  Steffen has given some links to the Wiki and some
general hints which I'd subscribe as well.  I'd also recommend reading
the Debian Science policy document[1]

I hope these hints have given you some kickstart.  If you need further
help you are probably well advised to ask on Debian Science mailing
list.  You will find a lot of other physicists there and one of thems
(me ;-)) is constantly nagging about the idea to create a Debian Physics
Blend.  Perhaps actually you might increase the critical mass to a level
where this might attract enough people driving this effort.

Kind regards
