Computational Physics Seminar – Overview
About the lecture
Time and placeThursday 16 - 18 c.t. Theresienstr. 37 in A249
Professors: Hartmut Ruhl, Armin Scrinzi
Initial meeting: Thursday, April 26
The general field of the topics is described further down. You are encouraged to find something related to this topics yourself. If you do not so, further concrete topics will be provided in the initial meeting.
Introduction, schedule, and selected topics
Most topics can be treated more analytically or more computationally / numerically, depending on your preferences. You can do literature work, analytical work, or write functioning codes.
A few topics for summer term 2012: [here...] and many more.
The seminar will be credited if:
(a) at least one presentation is given,
(b) all presentations (missing 2 at most) have been attended,
(c) the student actively participated in discussions.
