3.320 Atomistic Computer Modeling of Materials


Class Info

Theory and application of atomistic computer simulations to model, understand, and predict the properties of real materials. Energy models: from classical potentials to first-principles approaches. Density-functional theory and the total-energy pseudopotential method. Errors and accuracy of quantitative predictions. Thermodynamic ensembles: Monte Carlo sampling and molecular dynamics simulations. Free energies and phase transitions. Fluctations and transport properties. Coarse-graining approaches and mesoscale models.

This class has 3.022, 3.20, and 3.23 as prerequisites.

3.320 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by R. Gomez-Bombarelli.

Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-261.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
