Admission requirementAttendance to the lecture is strongly advised since the lecturers are giving the necessary complements to students with possible background gaps in a particular topic. Attendance to the exercises is also necessary to get acquainted with the simulation method and scientific computing with hands-on activities. Full support will be given by teachers and assistants during the exercises and by E-Mail.
Additional information on mode of examinationThe final grade will be the result of a 45 minutes individual oral exam on the course topics (75%) and a group project that will be performed by groups of 3 to 5 students during the semester (25%). In this "miniature research project", the student groups will pick up a project from a list provided by the teacher. These projects are "extended exercises" (compared to the ones performed in class). The project will consist of performing simulations, improving Jupyter notebooks for the data analysis, writing a short report containing data assessment and interpretation, as well as presenting the results with a few slides (one representative person per group).
