Mini-workshop: Introduction to computational quantum transport with Kwant
In this four-hour workshop we introduce the basics of quantum transport simulations of mesoscopic devices using the Kwant software package. Our entry-level workshop is aimed at active condensed matter physicists who have a basic knowledge of Python. We do not expect familiarity with Kwant or quantum transport simulations.
We thank https://mybinder.org, a public service and a volunteer-run open-source project with cloud resources sponsored by Google Cloud, OVH, GESIS Notebooks and the Turing Institute for providing a computational environment for the workshop.
You can run the course notebooks interactively or download a zip archive with notebooks (you'll need Kwant and Jupyter to run them).
