Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.


After completing the course, the student

  • can identify and describe basic models and simulation techniques that are frequently used to solve physical problems in various fields of computational physics, such as quantum, statistical, condensed matter or materials physics
  • can use these approaches to solve their own computational physics problems
  • can implement these tools into their own codes
