- Visualization, as well as being useful for presentations, is also a
research tool for Computational Condensed Matter/Material Science.
It is an especially suitable for discussing
simulation results with
works well when the experimentalists are in the next building.
Hopefully, with NGI/Internet 2 we will be able to exchange animated
visualizations in real time with US, European and even Australian associates.
- (Not discussed in this talk.)
Visualization is also essential for good teaching about quantum mechanics and
condensed matter physics, since most effects on the atomic scale cannot be
demonstrated in the usual way. (This is a whole separate talk!)
See my group's web pages at
for more information. As well as lots of
visualizations and downloadable programs there are lectures on
