Simulational Methods in Physics

Theoretical Biophysics

Prof. Dr. Dieter W. Heermann

The group is dedicated to the use and development of simulational techniques to solve problems that are intractable to current analytical theory, and to gain insight into physical phenomena where the accuracy and scope of experimental results is limited. Much attention is paid to the further development of these techniques. We are working mainly in the field of Theoretical Biophysics but still have close ties to the polymer physics world. The group develops and applies computational techniques for modelling and understanding biological processes at the molecular level.

Project topics:

  • Modeling of Entire Chromosomes
