Surfaces and interfaces

This lecture introduces the basic concepts used to describe the atomic or molecular structure of surfaces and interfaces and the underlying thermodynamic concepts. The influence of interfaces on the properties of materials is also discussed.

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 complem...

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 ...
