Last update: prof. Mgr. Pavel Jungwirth, CSc., DSc. (19.10.2020)

Zkoušku může skládat student/ka, který/á nejpozději 7 dnů předem předloží zpracovaný samostatný projekt z praktické části.
Zkouška je ústní v rozsahu probírané látky (viz sylabus).
Základem zkoušky je "obhajoba" samostatného projektu, důraz je kladen na porozumění použitým metodám a podstatě mezimolekulových interakcí v simulovaném systému.

V době koronavirové uzávěry probíhá studium formou individuálních konzultací na UOCHB spolu s domácími úkoly (četbou).

1. Thermodynamic ensembles, calculation of thermodynamic variables, correlation and distribution functions, ergodic theorem.

2. Interatomic and intermolecular potentials.

3. Integration of classical equations of motion - Verlet method, Leap-frog method etc.

4. Basics of Monte Carlo methods. Metropolis method of generation of the canonical ensemble.

5. Simulation protocol: initial conditions, entry parameters, periodic boundary conditions, interaction cutoff, Ewald summation, methods of temperature and pressure control.

6. Methods of visualization and analysis of results.

7. Examples of use for solving practical problems in biophysics, surface science etc.



Within the class, there will be both theoretical lectures and practical demonstrations of computer simulations.
