VT2021, study period II, 7.5 ECTS
The course gives a basic introduction to techniques for simulating complex systems and processes, typically with many coupled degrees of freedom. The main aim of the course is to introduce the students to applications of these techniques. To this end, the course contains five one-week projects in different areas (astronomy, biophysics, elementary particle physics, medical radiation physics and physical/theoretical chemistry).
