Who should attend?
This tutorial is targeted at scientists and engineers interested in discovering how modern computational approaches can be used to predict the structural properties of materials. The tutorial will benefit students, post-doctoral scholars and early career scientists, as well as senior scientists and engineers who do not specialize in computation.
- Introduction to atomic scale total energy methods: empirical interatomic potentials and first principles electronic structure based total energy methods.
- Applications of total energy methods to the computation of structures and energies of extended defects.
- Atomic scale dynamics: Molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods with applications to diffusion and synthesis.
