Numerical Methods in Physics,  Bachelor level course, Block 5

The course is a hands-on introduction to the numerical and computational techniques used in modern physics. While most bachelor level physics courses present examples where there exist elegant analytical solutions, many real world problems are solved with the help of computers and numerical techniques.

Although we will touch upon theoretical foundations for some of the numerical methods, this course is not meant to replace a formal and rigorous course on numerical methods. Neither it is intended to teach a  modern practices in efficient programming. Instead it aims at giving a student an overview of the most used numerical tools and the intuition about the power of quantitative computer models.

Physics of Molecular Diseases, Master level course, Block 2, Schema B

Diseases are complex dynamical processes, that are often caused by disregulations at the molecular and cellular levels. With the current developments in biology and physics we are at the point where quantitative description and understanding of these processes becomes crucial for treatment and disease prevention.

In this course we will get an overview of where and how physics approaches are contributing to the understanding of the diseases.

Through lectures, article discussions and related computer exercises we will see how simple quantitative models are becoming a powerful tool in understanding not only the causes of isolated diseases, but also uncover similarities across them.
