Courses

Here is a list of all course material currently developed with the contribution of the OSSCAR project.

Courses typically focus on computational physics, material science and chemistry.


Quantum Mechanics

Jsmol

This course material contains a collection of notebooks related to quantum-mechanics concepts. This material is used in the EPFL courses MSE-468 “Atomistic and quantum simulations of materials” and CH-452 “Computational methods in molecular quantum mechanics”.

Materials Science

Jsmol

A small selection of course material inspired by the Mathematica notebooks used in the EPFL course MSE-101(a) “Materials: from chemistry to properties”, focusing on essential concepts on the structure of materials in connection with the mechanical, thermal, electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials. Currently, the available jupyter notebooks cover the following topics: Lennard-Jones potential, Miller indices and cubic crystal structures. They are intended as a demonstrator of the capabilities of the OSSCAR and jupyter technology, as a starting point to add more content.
