      The goal Introduction to research in kinetic theory of quantum systems. Modeling and simulation of the transport processes in electronic and photonic systems. Research and development of new structures in nanoelectronics and photonics.
      The outcome Students are enabled to create originally models for simulating kinetics of very large number of particles and electromagnetic field in the nano structures and open systems. These models will provide new scientific results in nanoelectronics and photonics.
      Contents of lectures Statistical methods description of physical system. Nonequilibrium phenomena. Kinetic methods: BBGKY hierarchy, Boltzmann method. Quantum kinetic theory. Nanoscale and open systems. Stochastic methods: Brownian motion, Method Monte Carlo.
