TYC Materials Modelling Course

The TYC Materials Modelling lecture course provides an in-depth introduction into advanced topics of computational materials science and simulations, designed to be of interest to PhD students and postdocs across the Thomas Young Centre and MMM Hub.  A 22-session course covers topics such as Density Functional Theory, Molecular Dynamics and Quantum Monte Carlo simulations as well as nucleation theory, accurate calculations of phonons and excited states in solids, and advanced methods of structure prediction.

Open to all students/postdocs from across the TYC, delivered by top experts in the field of materials and molecular modelling from universities from London and Cambridge.

The course will be delivered in person at UCL, commencing at 1pm on 5 October 2022. The venue is expected to be E7 on the ground floor of the Physics department for the first week, the permanent venue will be confirmed in due course.
