Hot Big Bang Academia Copernicana Course


  • Prerequisites for the Hot Big Bang Model AC course, summer semester 2019/20
    • Some of the participants will be from the physics faculty, but many will be from the biology and chemistry faculties, so students will not be expected to have advanced physics knowledge. Those who do know physics will obviously have an advantage in understanding the material. Some basic knowledge will nevertheless be expected:
    • mathematics: elementary algebra, calculus, geometry and statistics, as required in the hard sciences at doctoral research level (physics/chemistry/biology)
    • physics/astronomy: elementary knowledge of astronomy and physics will be expected (e.g. Newton's law, qualitative knowledge of nuclei, atoms, planets, stars, galaxies)
    • software tools: doctoral students in fundamental scientific research should be familiar with or be willing to quickly learn how to use software that they have the right to use freely, to understand, to modify and to redistribute in original or modified form; use of software tools not satisfying these conditions (or use of web services running unknown software) will be considered intellectually inconsistent with the aims of the examination
    • as doctoral students, the participants should be able to use the incredibly rich online resources of the Internet to catch up on missing background knowledge; this does not mean the ability to click, it means the ability to click, read, think, calculate and verify to successively deeper levels of knowledge
