Exams
The following dates and times have been scheduled for the oral exams.Please send an email (Maria Fyta, Jens Smiatek) noting your preference. We will send an email back confirming (or not) the date.
Thu. Sep 19: 10:00, 11:00, 13:00, and 14:00
Overview
 Type
 Lecture (2 SWS) and Tutorials "Simulationsmethoden in der Praxis" (2 SWS)
 Lecturer
 JP. Dr. Maria Fyta, (Lecture); Dr. Jens Smiatek(Tutorials)
 Course language
 English
NO lecture on 11.07.The lecture on 18.07 will start earlier at 11am.  Lectures
 Time: Thursdays, 11:30  13:00, ICP, Allmandring 3, Seminarroom 1
Exception: the lecture of 02.05 will NOT take place that day, but on 30.04 at 08:3010:00.  Tutorials
 Time: Tuesdays, 08:0010:00, ICP, Allmandring 3, CIPPool
The tutorials have their own title "Simulationsmethoden in der Praxis", as they can be attended independently of the lecture and are in fact part part of the Physics MSc module "Fortgeschrittene Simulationsmethoden" and not of the module that contains the lecture "Simulation Methods in Physics II".
The lecture is accompanied by handsontutorials which will take place in the CIPPool of the ICP, Allmandring 3. They consist of practical exercises at the computer, like small programming tasks, simulations, visualization and data analysis. The tutorials build on each other, therefore continuous attendance is expected.
Scope
The course intends to give an overview about modern simulation methods used in physics today. The stress of the lecture will be to introduce different approaches to simulate a problem, hence we will not go too to deep into specific details but rather try to cover a broad range of methods. For an idea about the content look at the lecture schedule.
Prerequisites
We expect the participants to have basic knowledge in classical and statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, electrodynamics, and partial differential equations, as well as knowledge of a programming language. The knowledge of the previous course Simulation Methods I is expected.
Certificate Requirements
 1. Attendance of the exercise classes
 2. Obtaining 50% of the possible marks in the handin exercises
There will be a final grade for the Module "Simulation Methods" (this module consists of both lectures, Sim I plus Sim II) determined at the end of lecture Simulation Methods II.
The final grade will be determined in the following way: There will be an oral examination performed at (or after) the end of the course Simulation Methods II (SS 2012).
