Why This Course?
The goal of this course is to become familiar with the methods used to model the behavior of materials with the help of computers
Prerequisites
The following Course is a requirement: 0509.1820 Programming in Python.
Format of the Course
We meet twice every week. On Tuesdays from 16:00 to 19:00 we cover a topic of the Course and we describe one or two Homework projects to be carried out with the help of computer programs that you will write. During the practice sessions you will receive extra help to carry out those projects.
Grading
The grade of the course is computed in this way: 50% is given by the Homework and 50% is given by the Exam.
The Homework must be done and submitted individually. There will be around 10 Homework projects.
The final Exam will have multiplechoice questions directly related to the content of the course; most of these questions you should be able to answer if you did the Homework by yourself).
