    Course Highlights

    This course features selected lecture notes and a complete set of assignments, many with supporting software.

    Course Description

    This course surveys the basic concepts of computer modeling in science and engineering using discrete particle systems and continuum fields. It covers techniques and software for statistical sampling, simulation, data analysis and visualization, and uses statistical, quantum chemical, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, mesoscale and continuum methods to study fundamental physical phenomena encountered in the fields of computational physics, chemistry, mechanics, materials science, biology, and applied mathematics. Applications are drawn from a range of disciplines to build a broad-based understanding of complex structures and interactions in problems where simulation is on equal footing with theory and experiment. A term project allows development of individual interests. Students are mentored by a coordinated team of participating faculty from across the Institute.
