Modern Computational Methods in Solids
by

Publisher: University of Wyoming
Number of pages: 99

Description:
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to a series of paradigmatic physical problems in condensed matter, using the computer to solve them. The course will feel like a natural extension of introductory condensed matter, with extra degrees of complexity that make the problems analytically intractable to some extent. Therefore, it will also serve as a complementary condensed matter course.
