Simulation Workshop at the 73rd Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics

This page collects the material presented in the modelling workshop at the 73rd Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics on the 28.07.2017 by Daniel Brown and Andreas Freise.

Software Installation

During this workshop (and, in fact, for our modelling work for gravitational-wave detectors such as LIGO, Virgo and ET) we only use cross-platform, open source software. Therefore it is easy to install the required software on your own computers, following the instructions we have provided below:

Task notebooks

Download and extract each of these zip files into the same folder. The Jupyter notebooks in that foder contain the tasks for you to work on and all the relevant descriptions.

Answer notebooks

HTML versions of the notebooks that show the answers to the tasks. We recommend that you do not read these before you tried to solve the tasks in the notebooks above by yourselves.

Intro Talk Slides and Lecture Notes

The handwritten notes were written for ourselves to help with the session. We distribute them here in case they are useful, but they do not exactly represent what has been shown on the white board, nor did we correct mistakes that we discovered later.
