Biomechanics: energetics of the heart mechanism. transport processes, flow of fluids, heart, diffusion, oxygen supply of tissues. The forms of heat exchange, osmosis. Bioenergetics: the laws of thermodynamics, manifestations of Gibbs free energy, chemiosmotic theory, passive and active transport through biomembranes, photosynthesis, respiratory electron transport in mitochondria. Bioelectricity: Donnan equilibrium, Goldman potential, phenomenological and molecular description of action potential. Radiation biophysics, dosimetry. Biophysics of organs and sensory organs: elasticity of tissues, heart, visison, hearing, the mechanism contraction of muscles, (Hill equation, contractile polypeptides). Methods of structural investigations in biophysics, optical and resonance spectroscopies processes. The Molecular biophysics: structure and function of biomolecules (polipeptides, proteins and DNA) the connection between structure and function. Matematical modelling of biological processes (evolution and population models).
