Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Simulations of quantum-mechanical many-electron systems, with special focus on solid state physics and materials science.
The course is structured in hands-on sessions, preceded by theoretical introductions to the physical properties and the computational techniques.
Simulations are performed in the density-functional theory framework, by using the Vienna ab initio package (VASP).
Fundamental physical properties, such as the electronic band structure, effective forces among ions, vibrational frequencies, mechanical properties, thermodynamic properties, as well as magnetic properties are discussed and calculated.
Students may also write programs in selected areas of computational science (Monte Carlo, molecular dynamics, Schrödinger equation solvers).

Pre-requirements:
A laptop with WiFi connection is highly recommended.
Preliminary knowledge of Quantum Mechanics and Solid State Physics, and familiarity with Linux-shell scripting are beneficial but not required.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Based on the handed.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Familiarity with quantum-mechanical simulation programs, such as VASP, in the application to complex problems in materials science. Linux-shell basic-level scripting, and capability to use graphical tools for the visualization of computed data. Team working skill.

Prüfungsstoff

Computer oriented, weekly assignments. Physical properties and processes in solids and materials science are simulated. The complexity of the examples increases gradually.
