About the Author

Prof. Scherer received his PhD in experimental and theoretical physics in 1984. He habilitated in theoretical physics and has been a lecturer at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) since 1999. He joined the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, Japan, as a visiting scientist in 2001 and 2003. From 2006 to 2008 he has been temporary leader of the Institute for Theoretical Biomolecular Physics at TUM. Ever since he has been an adjunct professor at the physics faculty of TUM. His area of research includes biomolecular physics and the computer simulation of molecular systems with classical and quantum methods. He published books on theoretical molecular physics and computational physics.
