When the year begins, we launch relatively quickly into workshops in multiscale materials modelling, so there is not much time to revise material that we would normally expect the majority of the cohort to have studied previously but which a few have not previously seen. As a result, we have put together material for self study over the vacation before you begin your course. This focusses on three areas:
