Theoretical and Computational Physics
Martin Bier does theoretical work involving thermodynamics, dynamical systems, complex networks, and stochastic processes. Through a combination of computer simulations, acquisition of data, and theoretical approximations, our group tries to understand why and how systems behave the way they do. In this way we analyze the propagation of infectious disease, the transduction of energy through biomolecules, the transfer of stocks, etc.
Dr. Zi-Wei Lin does research in theoretical and computational physics. His research interests includes
- theoretical high energy heavy ion physics and development of Monte Carlo transport models,
- radiation physics and space radiation protection,
- medical physics on pseudo-CT methods for MRI-only radiotherapy.
These projects have involved undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, visiting students, and visiting professors.
