Teaching (Lehre)

We offer a number of courses in the areas of statistical physics, soft matter theory, and simulation methods. In addition, students at the MSc (master of science) level have the opportunity to carry out computer simulation projects in the group as part of the advanced lab course. All group leaders also offer projects for bachelor and master theses. Just contact us and ask for details.

The following lectures are offered on a regular basis:

  • Advanced statistical physics (Theory 6b, 9 CP or 6+5 CP, winter term)
    This class builds on the bachelor level class "Theorie 4" (statistical physics and thermodynamics) and provides basic knowledge on topics like phase transitions and nonequilibrium physics
  • Computer simulations in statistical physics (6 CP, winter term)
    This class is also open for students from computer science (master level) and gives an introduction into the foundations of basic computer simulation techniques such as Monte Carlo simulation and Molecular Dynamics simulations.

Other regularly offered classes include

  • Modern simulation techniques in condensed matter physics (6 CP, summer term)
  • Theory of soft matter (6 CP, summer term )
