  3. Illinois MatSE485/Phys466/CSE485 - Atomic-Scale Simulation

    27 Jan 2009 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Ceperley

    THE OBJECTIVE is to learn and apply fundamental techniques used in (primarily classical) simulations in order to help understand and predict properties of microscopic systems in materials science, physics, chemistry, and biology. THE EMPHASIS will be on connections between the simulation results...
