 Study Objective:

The aim of the seminar is to familiarize students with basic concepts of solid state physics through the practical implementation of a set of simulation tasks performed on 1D and 2D models. Each block of tasks is always preceded by a brief explanation of the theoretical basis of simulation and interpretation of the achieved results. The course is implemented in the KIPL FJFI computer classroom using a set of simulation programs „SSS: Solid State Simulations“.
