Description: Physico-chemical principles augmented by ever-advancing computation technology have become a tool for explaining rich materials properties, designing nano-structures and their possible functionality. This course overviews basic quantum principles of materials structure, and a hierarchy of approximations broadly used in computational models. This includes classical mutli-body potentials, tight-binding approximations, electronic density functional theory methods, etc. MSNE 533 requires additional work. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: MSNE 433. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for MSNE 533 if student has credit for MSNE 433.
