About the Programme
The Programme on Molecular Dynamics Simulations in Materials Science & Engineering is organised by IIT Kharagpur from June 8-12, 2020.
This course aims at introducing the fundamental and practical aspects of atomistic simulations. Both theoretical and hands -on practical aspects shall be covered comprehensively. The theory lectures will commence with a gentle introduction to the basic philosophy of molecular dynamics simulations and gradually progress towards the finer details like structural optimization, time -integrators, thermostats and barostats, etc.
Finally, the lectures will demonstrate applications of these tools from the standpoint of fundamental research and domains of industrial applications. Apart from the theory classes, there will be a laboratory component, where the participants will implement the algorithms taught in the theory classes.
