Overview

Type
Lecture (2 SWS) and Tutorials "Simulationsmethoden in der Praxis" (2 SWS)
Lecturers
Prof. Dr. Christian Holm
aplProf Dr. Maria Fyta
Tutors
Dr. Azade Yazdanyar, Samuel Tovey
Course language
English
Location and Time
Lecture: Lectures will be uploaded every week to ILIAS as videos
Tutorials: TBA ; Until further notice, tutorials will be held online. Detailed information is available in ILIAS

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 containing the lecture "Simulation Methods in Physics II".

Tutorials 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. Obtaining 50% of the possible marks in the hand-in exercises.

The final grade will be determined from the final oral examination.

Oral Examination

Please email to Christian Holm or Maria Fyta in order to arrange a date for the oral examination.
