This course provides the fundamental knowledge on the computational material science. In the early stage, students learn how to calculate molecular structures and electronic structures by quantum chemistry program and understand the chemical bonding. In the middle stage, the fundamental principles of regression analyses and the differences among those methods are explained. To demonstrate the regression analysis, data-analyses software equipped with Graphical User Interface (GUI) is used for dataset of ceramic materials and their properties. In the final stage, the students experience programing language using python, which is widely used in materials science, by making simple programs. Latest research topics of computational science-promoted material design are also introduced.
This lecture aims to learn the following knowledge on the quantum chemistry and computational science for understanding the ceramics materials and their properties.
• Learn about the fundamentals of quantum calculation and practical procedures.

The course is divided into 3 parts. In each lecture, some exercises are given, and the students carry out and submit them to the lecturer.
In the early stage, basic knowledge on the chemical bonds is provided. The students are requested to use quantum chemistry calculation software to calculate structure of molecules within lecture time.
In the middle stage, fundamentals on regression analyses are explained. The students use data-analyses software to demonstrate regression analyses for a dataset of ceramics material and their properties.
In the final stage, basic knowledge on generic programing language is provided.
