• FORMAT OF THE COURSE: It's a Lab course of 6 European-Credits-Transfer-System points (ETCS, or "Crediti Formativi Universitari", CFU, in Italian) for the "Laurea Magistrale" in Physics (equivalent to an advanced Master Degree in Physics in the Anglo-Saxon system). It is proposed in particular, but not exclusively, for students from the Condensed Matter training track, and does not requires particular knowledge of Condensed Matter beyond that acquired during the Bachelor Degree. It amounts to a total of  72 hours of activity: about 24 of lectures and about 48 of assisted sessions in Computer Lab.
  • Hands-on Lab. sessions (which are extremely important) include:
    • simple introductory exercises (with implementation and use of several basic algorithms of numerical analysis) to recover a basic expertise on Fortran 90, use of computers, error handling;
    • exercises for specific applications and simulations, collection and analysis of data, visualization;
    • comprehension, use, and rewriting of "old" codes (draft sources in Fortran 90 available)
    • personal implementation of new codes
  • IMPORTANT: Participation is mandatory (see: "Regolamento didattico 2015/16" (Italian only), Art. 11); in case of problems, contact the teacher. The attendance to the lectures and Lab sessions will be registered. Admission to the exam is possible only upon attendance of at least 75% of the hours in class/lab.

  • TIME SCHEDULE: The Course is scheduled for the II SEMESTER (February 29 - June 1, 2016). Lectures will be given at the Physics Department, Via Valerio 2, typically 1 "Unit" (0.5 CFU (credits)) per week, consisting in:
    - 2 hours of lecture (Wed., 4:00-6:00 p.m., Room B) and
    - 4 hours of hands-on session in the Computer Lab (Fri., 9:00-12:45, Lab. "Poropat", II floor)

    Possible variations will be announced on this Web page.
  • LANGUAGE: Lectures are given in English if attended by foreign students from the INTERNATIONAL STUDY PROGRAM IN PHYSICS under the agreement ICTP-University of Trieste, or from other international programmes. Students can give the exam either in English or in Italian.
      Labs are equipped with personal computers in a Linux cluster named INFIS. Ask for an account (Modulo account INFIS) if you do not have one; it's important to have access to course material not publicly available on the web. Use of personal laptops is of course allowed.
