The second part of this two-semester course, which aims at depth rather than breadth, offers an introduction to the most important many-body simulation techniques in Statistical Mechanics:

" Monte Carlo Simulations

" Molecular Dynamics

" Long-Range Interactions

" Quantum Mechanical Simulations

Since the emphasis of the course is on providing practical knowledge, all algorithms are explained in detail and illustrated by sample programs, so that students may readily extend them or write their own code if they wish to. For the same reason, the accompanying problem class is considered an integral part of the course. Computational Physics I and II are recommended as a basis for the Computational Physics Laboratory.

Prerequisites: Computational Physics I or equivalent, fundamentals of Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics, good programming skills.
