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. Cross-list: MSNE 533. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for MSNE 433 if student has credit for MSNE 533.
