49038-01 - Lecture with practical courses: Theoretical biophysics 4 CP

Semester fall semester 2018
Course frequency Every fall sem.
Lecturers Richard Neher (richard.neher@unibas.ch, Assessor)
Content This course will cover concepts of theoretical biophysics and introduce mathematical and numerical methods to solve problems in quantitative biology. In particular, we will focus on polymer physics, membranes, diffusion in different dimensions, electrostatic interactions, and self-organization within cells.
Learning objectives During the course, the students will learn techniques of quantitative reasoning such as dimensional analysis and methods for approximate analytic solutions of difficult mathematical problems (dominant balance, saddle point approximations, integral transforms, iteration techniques, etc). Problems will be tackled both analytically to understand the qualitative behavior of a system and numerically to obtain quantitative predictions.

 

Admission requirements Prerequisites:
Basic calculus and linear algebra
Basics of scientific computing and numerical mathematics
Basic programming skills (preferably Python)
Language of instruction English
Weblink Graduate Teaching Program
Use of digital media No specific media used
