The goal of the subject Computer

technologies is to introduce to students of computer science and informatics

the physical and technological fundamentals for operating and manufacturing

computers, quantitative treatment of some relevant examples from the area of

solid state physics, as well as the introduction of the application of physics

laws in the technology of fabrication of microelectronic, monolithic circuits

which are basic elements of computers. One of the aims of the subject is also

the introduction of quantum mechanics which becomes increasingly important

physical theory in computer science.

Course practicalities: Lectures and individual reading. Two colloquia (or a written exam), seminar work, oral exam. Lecture notes, exercise book and a list of examination questions are available.

Prerequisites: elementary classical physics, basic linear algebra and calculus.
