Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this laboratory course, students will learn to solve physics problems using computers. Guided by instructors, students will select a small project and work on it during the semester with regular feedback from the instructors. Possible topics include: molecular dynamics simulations, Monte Carlo simulations, integral equations, electronic structure calculations and optimization. Work will consist in writing code, running simulations, analyzing results and writing a final report. Towards the end of the semester participants will give a presentation of their work to their fellow students and to the instructors. Students have the possibility to write their Bachelor's thesis within this laboratory course. Prerequisites: some knowledge of statistical physics and solid state physics, programming skills.
