Summer School "Efficient Algorithms in Computational Physics"

10.09.2012  -  14.09.2012

Computer simulations play an ever increasing role in physics research. This school will provide an introduction to the field, including up-to-date research topics.  A particular emphasis of this school will be  efficient algorithms, which allow one to study larger system sizes than with standard approaches. Since doing computer simulations means learning by doing, the school comprises, in addition to lectures, of a considerable amount of HANDS-ON EXERCISES at the computer, which makes this school rather special in its field.

The school addresses students which have a physics background and basic knowledge in a higher programming language. like Pascal, C/C++, or Fortran. The language used throughout the school will be the C programming language (and some Python scripts).
