Course "Computer physics with focus on time-dependent quantum mechanics" consists of a lecture (2 weekly hours), exercise class (2 weekly hours) and a project class (2 weekly hours). Each lecture discusses a theoretical approach used in Quantum Mechanics, such as Lancos algorithm, Monte Carlo algorithm, Machine Learning for Quantum Mechanics, Numerov Algorithm, Cranck-Nicolson Algorithm, Runge-Kutta algorithm, etc. Students deepen the understanding of the approach by performing an exercise task to computationally implement the approach for a simple quantum-mechanical model. For a project class, students get individual projects to write a code that solves an advanced problem.
Proseminar "Ultrafast Phenomena" provides an overview of modern discoveries and state-of-the-art scientific topics. After it became possible to produce light pulses of a sub-picosecond duration about two decades ago, a number of various fascinating and intriguing ultrafast phenomena induced by such pulses have been demonstrated. An overview of advances in attosecond science, ultrafast optomagnetism, nonlinear optics in strong laser fields, light-induced superconductivity etc is provided. This course is interdisciplinary and includes advances in both solid state physics and AMO physics (atomic, molecular and optical physics), since these two areas have often much in common for ultrafast light-induced processes.
