You should now all have got your grades.
I would like to thank you all for your involvement in the course.
I am vey happy with all comments you have sent me on how to
improve the course. It is very valuable to get comments from
all student, both strong and weak. Based on the comments,
the course will be changed next year.
(I promise, not to use this type of "exam" next year.)

(30/01-2017)
You can now find the result for H3a on the homepage.

(19/01-2017)
You can now find the result for H3a on the homepage.
The result for H3b will come later.

(11/01-2017)
Notice: Error in the Lectures notes "Quantum structure" for H3a.
In H3a you are asked to use the information in the Lecture notes "Quantum structure",
equation (63). Instead of using E_T^(k-1) in equation (63), use your best
current estimate of the ground state energy, i.e. the running average of E_T.
The algorithm will then show better convergence.

If you are interested in a Master thesis in Computational Physics,
you find one suggestion here and another one here and more at:
http://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/education/masters-thesis/Pages/default.aspx .

(12/12-2016)
You can now find H3a and H3b on the homepage.

(12/12-2016)
If you are interested in further courses in Computational Physics,
please have a look at TIF035 Computational materials physics.

(12/12-2016)
Lecture Notes "Quantum Structure" slightly updated.

(9/12-2016)
You can now also report E5 on Tuesday Dec 13.

(7/12-2016)
Notice, some update of the examination. If you do not want to
send in your comments you can make an appointment with me,
goran.wahnstrom@chalmers.se

(6/12-2016)
Notice, some update of the examination. We ask for some comments on the course
and the points for the various grades have been modified.
See under "Examination" and under "Exam".

(6/12-2016)
Notice, BD Lecture Notes has been corrected,
the algorithm BD3 (in the fourth line, the sqrt(co) has been added).

(5/12-2016)
Notice, The rules to get points on the homework
problems and the connection to the deadlines. (see under "Homework problems" at the homepage).

(4/12-2016)
Notice, H2b has been updated. Unfortunately, the expression for
the angle between the two electrons was incorrect.
In the updated version (version 2016-12-03),
you find the correct expression.

(4/12-2016)
Notice, QS Lecture Notes has been slightly updated.

(22/11-2016)
Notice, the return of H1b today will be in O7105B.

(18/11-2016)
Besides lecture notes on Molecular dynamics you can also now find
lecture notes on Brownian dynamics on the home page.

(18/11-2016)
You can now start to sign up for the homework problem H2,
see the link to a Doodle on the homepage.
You have to write your name and make a mark in the list.
If you collaborate, please write both names on the same line.

(18/11-2016)
The student representatives this year are chosen at random. They are:
Oleksii Bielikh (bielikh@student.chalmers.se)
Rafal Piwowarczyk (rafalp@student.chalmers.se)

(16/11-2016)
If you need some help with the "Transformation method" in connection to E3,
have a look at the notes under Lecture 5, "Random numbers".

(16/11-2016)
Johan Rasmusson (nils.johan.rasmusson@gmail.com) would like to
have someone to collaborate with for the homework problems.
Please contact him if you are interested.

(14/11-2016)
Notice: There is a problem with random number generator RANDOM in c!
On the homepage, please find information on the gsl random number generator for exercise E3.

(8/11-2015)
You can now start to sign up for the homework problem H1,
see the link to a Doodle on the homepage.
You have to write your name and make a mark in the list.
If you collaborate, please write both names on the same line.

The course starts:
Monday 31st of October 2016 at 15.15 in EB
Welcome!

(25/10-2016)
This year will make use of the programming language c.
Please make use of the scheduled Computerlabs the first week to get an introduction to c.

(25/10-2016)
Computer lab sessions in room FT7203
The room is located in the building we call "Fysiks Forskarhus",
the building in the form of a cube just south of the MC2 building.
FT7203 is located on the floor no 7, the floor you enter when you come
from building Origo and pass through the connection between Origo
and "Fysiks Forskarhus".

(25/10-2016)
For some tutorials to c, see the homepage under "Literature".

(25/10-2016)
You are encouraged to collaborate both for the exercises and homework problems.
However, maximum two students in each group.
The group can then give one presentation at the computer lab session,
but both students have to be present. You hand in one report per group.
