2005 Summer School on Computational Materials Science
Hands-on introduction to Electronic Structure and Thermodynamics Calculations of Real Materials
School format includes lectures and hands-on computer labs. On Monday, June 13, 2005, there was an afternoon review session on Unix fundamentals and on compilers used in the lab. The instructional level of the school will be appropriate to graduate students and post-docs, and will include both lectures and computer laboratories. Additional information includes web photo gallery, maps, etc.
Downloading the lecture slides and executables
If you click on the title of the lecture in the right-hand column below, it will take you to a separate page (one for each speaker) where you can see the executables and slides in PDF.
Playing the videos
When available, the videos are in the RealPlayer format. To view the videos, download and unpack the ZIP archive. In the folder, you'll see a file "course.smi". Open that file with RealPlayer. The .smi file could be considered a recipe for showing the video(s) with the slides changing at the correct time. (You can also view the the "media.rm" with VLC Player, but you won't have the benefit of seeing the slides at the same time. The media.rm file is the video of the speaker only.)
