AbstractThis course provides an introduction to simulation methods for quantum systems, starting with the one-body problem and finishing with quantum field theory, with special emphasis on quantum many-body systems. Both approximate methods (Hartree-Fock, density functional theory) and exact methods (exact diagonalization, quantum Monte Carlo) are covered.
ObjectiveThe goal is to become familiar with computer simulation techniques for quantum physics, through lectures and practical programming exercises.
