BioPhest 2017 at ASU

BioPhest 2017 at ASU

Please mark the date for BioPhest 2017 at Arizona State University on April 22, 2017, which will be hosted by the Center for Biological Physics! This annual event allows scientists from Arizona with an interest in biological physics to meet for a day of short talks, posters, and lively discussion. We especially welcome presentations from graduate students and postdocs, and also from researchers from biology and bioengineering whose interests overlap with biological physics.

PHY494 — Topic: Computational Methods in Physics

PHY494 — Topic: Computational Methods in Physics

The course provides an introduction to using the computer as a tool to solve problems in physics. Students will learn to analyze problems, select appropriate numerical algorithms, implement them using Python, a programming language widely used in scientific computing, and critically evaluate their numerical results. Problems will be drawn from diverse areas of physics.

PHY315 — Quantum Physics II

PHY315 — Quantum Physics II

PHY 315 is the second semester of the quantum physics sequence for physics majors. The goal of the course is to give you a quantitative understanding of the quantum mechanical behavior of a single particle and of many particles at the atomic scale. Together with an introduction to the theory of special relativity you will acquire core ideas and concepts of modern physics that offer a fundamentally different view of the world than classical physics.

PHY542/NAN542/PHY498 — Topics in Biophysics I

PHY542/NAN542/PHY498 — Topics in Biophysics I

This course is an introduction to biophysics for graduate and senior undergraduate students from physics, chemistry, engineering or related fields. The goal of this lecture is to give you the basics to understand and critically analyze recent publications in the interdisciplinary field of biophysics and develop a sense for how to model biological processes using physical principles.

PHY494/PHY598/CHM598 — Simulation approaches to Bio- and Nanophysics

PHY494/PHY598/CHM598 — Simulation approaches to Bio- and Nanophysics

The course will teach you the theoretical background on how to simulate systems at the atomic scale (e.g. using molecular dynamics), you will learn to program some of the fundamental algorithms, and you will be using state-of-the art software to run simulations of problems in areas of active research. The focus is on bio/nanophysics but there’s room to accommodate individual interests. The course will be half lecture, half hands-on work in a computer lab.

Note that this course is currently not scheduled. It ran the last time in Spring 2013.
