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 hands-on-tutorials which will take place in the CIP-Pool 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.

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.

Overview

Type
Lecture (2 SWS) and Tutorials "Simulationsmethoden in der Praxis" (2 SWS)
Lecturer
JP. Dr. Maria Fyta, (Lecture), Prof. Dr. [[Christian Holm]; Dr. Jens Smiatek; Mr. Bibek Adhikari; Mr. Narayanan Krishnamoorthy Anand (Tutorials)
Course language
English
Lectures
Time: Thursdays, 11:30 - 13:00, ICP, Allmandring 3, Seminarroom 1
Tutorials
Time: TBA, ICP, Allmandring 3, CIP-Pool

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 hands-on-tutorials which will take place in the CIP-Pool 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 each worksheet

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

Tutorials

  • The tutorials will take place in the ICP CIP-Pool. Day and time will be announced
  • New worksheets are handed out every two weeks. The first worksheet will be handed out on Thu. 17.04. The following week is dedicated to working on problems related to the last worksheet. Homework in the form of a report should be sent to the responsible tutor (Bibek Adhikari or Narayanan Krishnamoorthy Anand) before the next worksheet will be handed out. The two-week cycle ends with the discussion of results of the previous worksheet and handing out a new one.
  • Assessment of the tutorials

Each task within the tutorial is assigned a given number of points. Each student should have 50 % of the points from each tutorial as a prerequisite for the oral examination.

Examination

There is an oral examination at the end of the semester. All students having obtained 50% of the points from each tutorial are eligible to take the exam. The duration of the exam depends on the module this lecture is part of. Briefly,

BSc/MSc Physik, Modul "Simulationsmethoden in der Physik"
60 min exam (contents from both parts SMI + SMII will be examined)
International MSc Physics, Elective Module "Simulation Techniques in Physics II" (240918-005)
30 min exam (content only from SMII will be examined).
BSc/MSc SimTech, Modul "Simulationsmethoden in der Physik für SimTech II"
40 min (content from SMII will be examined).
