MolSim-2019 is 2-week school that offers a program focusing on numerical techniques for the study of properties of many-particle systems. It targets PhD and postdoctoral researchers who want to learn these techniques to study topics in physics, chemistry or biology. The course may also be followed by advanced MSc students. It offers a recap of the statistical mechanics relevant for molecular simulation, and addresses basic and advanced simulation techniques including Monte Carlo, molecular dynamics, free energy calculations, rare events, coarse graining. The school will have as special additional topic numerical techniques to model dynamics of complex fluids. These will be covered with special sessions by an expert in the field (Ignacio Pagonabarraga, University of Barcelona, Spain; presently also CECAM director).
All techniques will be accompanied by illustrative examples of present day research.
The school consists of an integrated program of lectures and hands-on exercises. The book “Understanding Molecular Simulation” by Frenkel and Smit will provide the basis of the lectures. This will be supplemented by exercise handouts and copies of the lecture slides.
A poster session will provide the participants an opportunity to present their research in an informal setting.
