Presentations by SCB faculty and students on current research topics. Required for the SCB certificate; other graduate students are welcome.
This calculus-based introduction to physics aimed at Divison V majors and pre-medical students covers basic mechanics, waves, and thermodynamics. This is a "flipped", more interactive, course with many examples from the biophysical and biomedical sciences.
This upper-level mechanics course is aimed at biophysics and physics majors; it covers topics in non-relativistic classical mechanics and techniques in applied mathematics and computation. It assumes a mastery of the material covered in Mth 205. Once a week, there is a matlab "lab," which serves the dual-purpose of introducing computational methods and allowing for exploration of more complex-problems in mechanics.
This graduate course is aimed at physics graduate students and topics in statistical mechanics and computation. It builds heavily on classical mechanics classes. Once a week, there is a matlab "lab," which allows for exploration of more complex-problems in statistical mechanics.
This journal club is required for the SCB certificate; other grad students are welcome. This semester's topic is "Biophysics of Drug Discovery."
