Tutorial to Numerical Methods for Quantum Dynamics
| The tutorial homepage is now online. Throughout the semester, this site is actively updated.
The exercise is every second wednesday from 10.15-12.00 in S08.
Content of the Course
The course gives an introduction into numerical methods for quantum
dynamics and their analysis. It treats direct time and space
discretizations of Schrödinger equations as well as discretizations of
reduced models obtained from the Dirac-Frenkel time-dependent
variational principle, in particular tensor-based methods and
Gaussian-based methods. It is based on the book cited below and on
more recent developments. The course assumes some basic knowledge of
numerical analysis and of the Schrödinger equation on the part of the
participants but is largely self-contained.
- Students whose degrees are managed in Alma have to register for the exam and for the tutorials through the procedings there. This includes: B.Sc. PO 2017 and 2019, B.Ed. Gymnasium PO 2016
and 2018, B.Ed. Berufliche Schulen PO 2015 and 2018, B.Ed. Vorleistungen Erweiterungsfach PO 2019, M.Ed. Berufliche Schulen PO 2018, M.Ed. Erweiterungsfach PO 2020. All informations are without guarantee, if you are unsure consult the regulations specific to your degree.
- Please register in URM, so that we can estimate the overall demand for the course. If there is a problem with the registration, then send me an e-mail and we will sort it out.
Every week, the exercise sheets are published here.

Tutorial date and procedure
- The exercise date will be discussed in the first lecture (Tuesday 18.10.). As a preliminary date, we reserved a room every wednesday from 10-12, however this will likely change to suit the needs of the participants.
- The first exercise class will be in the week from the 24.10-28.10 . All participants will cross the exercises that have been solved by him/her at the start of the tutorial.
- The tutor chooses a participant to present each exercise among those students that have crossed the specific exercise. If a serious lack of understanding of the exercise is shown by the student, then all crosses on the current sheet are negated.
- Should the need arise, you can also send me a write-up as an exception, of course before the start of the exercise.
- Handing in as a team is not possible.
- There will also be programming exercises, which are discussed in the tutorials just as regular exercises are.
- Anybody who crosses at least half of the exercises is admitted to the exam.
