By use of molecular simulation methods such as first-principles simulations based on density functional theory (DFT) and molecular dynamics simulations (MD), we will conduct research on fusion reactor materials by taking an approach based on the elucidation of physical phenomena at the atomic scale. We teach the computational and programming techniques required for computer simulations, as well as the handling of large-scale data obtained from simulations.
