Seminar
Computational Nuclear Structure Physics
Robert RothWS 2024/2025
Seminar:  Do. 15:20  17:00  @ TBA 
This seminar aims to provide a handson overview of modern computerbased methods in nuclear structure physics, extending to the most powerful approaches in computational nuclear physics used in current research. Each seminar topic includes a “theoretical” part, which focuses on the formulation of the method within manybody quantum mechanics, and a “computational” part, where you will create your own proofofconcept implementation of the respective method, e.g., in Python or Mathematica. Basic programming skills, such as those taught in the “Computational Physics” lecture, are sufficient for this.
IMPORTANT: You have to start working on your project right away. Yes, the presentation is still a couple of months away and it is very tempting to postpone everything until the Christmas break... well, this will likely end in disaster! Therefore, if you chose to participate in the seminar you have to be willing and able to start working on your project right away.
