Abstract

This short course will explore a range of computational approaches relevant for nanotechnology.

Topics will include:

  • Density functional theory, applied to the study of electronic properties of nanostructures
  • Non-equilibrium Green's functions for transport application
  • Carbon nanotubes and molecular electronics
  • NEMS (nano-elecrical-mechanical systems)
  • Ionic transport in biological and biomimetic structures
  • Numerical methods

Instructional materials are based on cutting edge, contemporary research, with an emphasis on problems in nano-scale science and engineering. The instructional level of the school will be appropriate to graduate students and post-docs, and will include both lectures and computer laboratories.
