37th IFF Spring School

Computational Condensed Matter Physics

March 6 - 17, 2006 . Jülich . Germany



The IFF Spring School 2006 will address modern computational approaches to condensed matter physics at a graduate student level. Introductory lectures will build the basis for the understanding of the major theoretical methods and the phenomena they are meant to describe. More advanced lectures will address practical aspects of the methods and demonstrate how computer simulations contribute to our understanding of physics. Highlighting exemplary applications will lead the audience from the basic numerical methods to the frontiers of current research.


The topics of the lectures cover:

  • Simulations of Quantum Systems
  • Density Functional Theory
  • Correlated Electrons
  • Quantum Computing
  • Complex Materials
  • Supercomputing
  • Mesoscopic Hydrodynamics
  • Monte Carlo Simulations
  • Biophysics
  • Soft Matter
  • Pattern Formation
  • Friction & Fracture
