MTLE 4500 - Computational Methods for Materials Design

This course will provide the background and a set of examples of how computational methods can be applied to design of materials with desired structure and properties. The methods will span multi-length and time scales, including first-principles approaches, molecular dynamics simulations, stochastic methods for optimization and sampling, and computational thermodynamics. Lectures will be complemented by computer labs with hands-on exercises using publicly available or commercial software packages.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Undergraduates must have junior standing or permission of the instructor.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
