General physics : thermodynamics (English)

Students acquire the abilities to analyze physical systems through the lens of thermodynamics, statistical physics, and special relativity.

Biophysics : physics of biological systems

Understand and use the results and methods of population genetics, population dynamics, network theory, and reaction network dynamics to analyze and predict the behavior of living systems

Nonequilibrum Physics for Complex Systems

We will discuss recent topics in nonequilibrium physics of complex living and artificial systems, ranging from collective behaviors in active matter to noise and information processing in cellular biophysics to stochastic learning dynamics in deep artificial neural networks.
