This class will be held online.

The first lecture will be on Monday, March 1st, at 10 am via Collaborate in Moodle.


Aims, contents and method of the course

This course introduces the techniques and evaluation methods of molecular dynamics simulations. We learn how to generate a trajectory (=film of moving molecules) and use it to predict or explain structural and dynamical properties of matter.

Assessment and permitted materials

If no face-to-face exams are possible during the summer due to the Corona situation, openbook exams will be offered.

All kinds of plagiarism are prohibited.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

At least 50% of the points in the final exam are required for a positive evaluation.

Examination topics

Fundamentals of molecular dynamics simulations, intra- and intermolecular potentials, common evaluation methods for structure elucidation, and transport properties.

Reading list
