 Time and Room
 Lecture times: Monday, 11:30 a.m.1 p.m., Room V27.03 (tentative),
The lecture is accompanied by handsontutorials which will take place in the CIPPool of the ICP, Pfaffenwaldring 27, U 108. 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. Tutorials will be hold on: Time to be announced.
Scope
The course will give an introduction to modern simulational techniques, like MonteCarlo (MC) and Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations (on and offlattice).
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 (preferably C or C++).
Certificate Requirements:
 1. Attendance of the exercise classes
 2. Obtaining 50% of the possible marks in the handin exercises
