Statistical mechanics

This course presents an introduction to statistical mechanics geared towards materials scientists. The concepts of macroscopic thermodynamics will be related to a microscopic picture and a statistical interpretation. Lectures and exercises will be complemented with hands-on simulation projects.

Statistical methods in atomistic computer simulations

The course gives an overview of atomistic simulation methods, combining theoretical lectures and hands-on sessions. It covers the basics (molecular dynamics and monte carlo sampling) and also more advanced topics (accelerated sampling of rare events, and non-linear dimensionality reduction).
