Informationen zur Vorlesung

Zeit und Ort

Friday 12.00-15.00 Kleiner Physikhörsaal N020

We will explore the the Emergence of life from the perspective of Astrophysics, Organic Chemistry and Non-equilibrium Physics. It is a 3 hour lecture followed by a one hour seminar, yielding in total 6 ECTS. The lecture is geared towards master students, but also open to other disciplines and backgrounds. The lecture is part of the Biophysics Program of the Physics Master.

We divide the topic into the following topics which we will present in an interlinked lecture
- Universe to Planets with Christian Rab / Barbara Ercolano (4 lectures)
- Early Geochemistry with Bettina Scheu (2 Lectures)
- Chemistry of Life with Oliver Trapp (3 lectures)
- Nonequilibrium for Evolution with Dieter Braun (3 lectures)
- Microfluidics and Finite element simulations with Christof Mast (1 lecture)

Seminar topics and Papers (pwd below, use 7z in case others do not work).

The lecture will be tested by an oral exam at the end of the Semester. Please send me a PDF of the fully filled out Schein by email before the exam. The mark will be a weighted average of your impression in the Seminar and the oral exam. We are helding the lecture in the Kleine Physikhörsaal and we will mix the topics to keep it more interesting.
