Preliminary outline of the course

The one-semester course in theoretical physics of soft condensed matter physics aims to provide a broad review the phenomena and the concepts characteristic of soft matter, covering selected topics in the theory of liquid state, liquid crystals, polymers, colloids, and amphiphile assemblies. The course builds on the equilibrium thermodynamics and statistical mechanics as well as on classical elasticity. The theoretical topics introduced are illustrated by problems discussed in the tutorials, giving the students some hands-on experience.
