  • 1.978 From Nano to Macro: Introduction to Atomistic Modeling Techniques



    January (IAP) 2007




    Course Highlights


    This course features complete sets of lecture notes and assignments. This course is offered during the Independent Activities Period (IAP), which is a special 4-week term at MIT that runs from the first week of January until the end of the month.


    Course Description


    The objective of this course is to introduce large-scale atomistic modeling techniques and highlight its importance for solving problems in modern engineering sciences. We demonstrate how atomistic modeling can be used to understand how materials fail under extreme loading, involving unfolding of proteins and propagation of cracks.

    This course was featured in an MIT Tech Talk article.
