Synopsis: Recent advances in theoretical and computational sciences have made it possible to achieve a "first principles" description of complex phenomena, such as the dynamical properties of materials and the functional motion of biomolecules. To this end, the lecture aims to provide an introduction into basic computational strategies (such as molecular dynamics and Monte-Carlo simulations) as well as powerful statistical theories (such as Langevin and Master Equations). The lessons are accompanied by computer exercises, which provide an hands-on experience of the topics.
