Advanced Computational Physics: Materials

Master's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: FIM590

The course does not start as a freestanding course this academic year but can start within a program or a course package. Please contact the department for further information.

About the Course

The rapid advances in computational power and methods, new algorithms and basic theory of electronic structure have made it feasible to calculate material properties directly from fundamental physical laws that provide new insights about vital problems in science and technology. These calculations are today becoming tools used by material scientists and engineers to understand characteristic properties of materials, to make specific predictions for real materials, and to design materials on the atomic scale with desired functions. The aim of this course is to outline modern computational methods and schemes providing challenges for the future and practical experience in carrying out computations of materials properties.
