BIOL-359 Dynamic Processes in Biological Physics
Fall for 2016-2017
The class combines basic knowledge of thermodynamics/statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics and biology to highlight physical processes that govern the dynamics of biological systems. The class will concentrate on dynamical aspects emerging on different temporal and spatial scales, random processes, Brownian motion and diffusion, thermodynamics of biological processes and the generation of membrane potentials.
This course serves as an approved course towards a concentration in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology as well as the concentration in Ecology, Evolution and Behavioral Biology.
Prerequisites: PHYS-101 and PHYS-102
