With these subjects the student will be able to understand the basis of solid state physics, such as
Solid state concepts; Phonons; Lattice and magnetic excitations in solids;
Force field methods; Hartree and Hartree-Fock theory; Density-Functional theory; Basis sets; Pseudopotentials; Molecular dynamics;
Functional properties of different types of materials;
Experimental methods for material characterization and how to simulate them numerically.;
The student will be able to apply these concepts on state of the art research topics.
