Resources (61-71 of 71)

  1. Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 1: Introduction to Computational Nanoscience

    13 Feb 2008 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin

    In this lecture, we present a historical overview of computational science. We describe modeling and simulation as forms of "theoretical experiments" and "experimental theory". We also discuss...

  2. Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 6: Pair Distribution Function and More on Potentials

    13 Feb 2008 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin

    In this lecture we remind ourselves what a pair distribution function is, how to compute it, and why it is so important in simulations. Then, we revisit potentials and go into more detail...
