Descriptif de l’UE:

A. Statistical Mechanics for Complex Chemical and Biochemical Systems: 4 ECTS

This course is aimed at both experimentalists and theoreticians. Its main focus is the molecular description of the dynamics of complex chemical and biochemical systems. It will cover both fundamental theoretical concepts in statistical mechanics and numerical simulation methods. Their applications to a broad range of questions and systems will be discussed, ranging from chemical kinetics and diffusion to vibrational spectroscopy, biomolecular conformational dynamics and protein folding.

B. Seminars: 2 ECTS

A report for a series of a series of 4 seminars will be provided.

Objectifs d’apprentissage

After this class, the students will master the essential concepts of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and molecular simulations, and they will be able to apply them to key chemical and biochemical systems.

PrErequis

This course requires a background in physical chemistry (L2/L3), statistical thermodynamics (L3) and chemical kinetics (L3).
