Animations

A big part of doing theoretical metallurgy is the making of simulations in the computer. As long as sensible approximations are made and reasonably realistic models are constructed then these can be extremely useful and even predictive. Great fun can be had making movies of these and such animations can be quite insightful. Here are one or two examples from recent work in my group.

The movies embedded in these pages do not display on all browsers. So I have also made links from each movie to a YouTube player.


Lectures

Two lectures on tight binding delivered at EPFL Lausanne, August 2015, and some lecture notes.


Lecture notes

When I'm preparing new lecture courses I frequently find it very useful to consult notes that other lecturers have put on their web pages for their students. So with absolutely no guarantee and in the hope that they will be useful here are some of mine.


Almost a book

Electrode and Corrosion Physics is as close as I'll ever get to writing a book. I wrote these notes as the attempt of a physicist to get to grips with the mysterious subject of electrochemistry. I started these in 2018 and got as far as the equilibrium aspects in March 2020. The thermodynamics of charged ions is in particular a mine field. There followed a hiatus of one year (the covid year) and in July 2021 I completed the final sections on kinetics and corrosion. I hope that these are useful to some people and I welcome constructive comments.
