Block G4 Students that enrol for the second year in the CSE Bachelor Programme and whose first year examination did not involve the subject "Physics I" will instead of "Physics II" (402-0034-10L) take the "Physics I and II" (402-0043-00L and 402-0044-00L) courses with performance assessment as a yearly course. As of FS 2018 the course unit 151-0122-00L Fluid Dynamics for CSE gets replaced in Block G4 by 151-0102-00L Fluid Dynamics I. | ||||||

529-0483-00L | Statistical Physics and Computer Simulation | O | 4 credits | 2V + 1U | S. Riniker, P. H. Hünenberger | |

Abstract | Principles and applications of statistical mechanics and equilibrium molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo simulation, Stochastic dynamics. Exercises using a MD simulation program to generate ensembles and subsequently calculate ensemble averages. | |||||

Learning objective | Introduction to statistical mechanics with the aid of computer simulation, development of skills to carry out statistical mechanical calculations using computers and interpret the results. | |||||

Content | Principles and applications of statistical mechanics and equilibrium molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo simulation, stochastic dynamics, free energy calculation. Exercises using a MD simulation program to generate ensembles and subsequently calculate ensemble averages. | |||||

Literature | will be announced in the lecture | |||||

Prerequisites / Notice | Since the exercises on the computer do convey and test essentially different skills as those being conveyed during the lectures and tested at the written exam, the results of a small programming project will be presented in a 10-minutes talk by pairs of students who had been working on the project. Additional information will be provided in the first lecture. |
