SPACE WEATHER
Space WeatherAccording to the European Space Agency, Space weather refers to the environmental conditions in Earth’s magnetosphere, ionosphere and thermosphere due to the Sun and the solar wind that can influence the functioning and reliability of spaceborne and groundbased systems and services or endanger property or human health. As the several branches of application, the theme is very alive all over the world and carried out by teams representing different competences, such as physics, engineering, mathematics, chemistry, biology and medicine.

INVERSION METHODS IN GEOPHYSICS
Inversion methods in geophysicsThis course is an introduction to geophysical inversion methods. The course will deal with both the resolution of linear and nonlinear problems using deterministic approaches such as the least squares method, the SVD, and regularization techniques as well as purely probabilistic approaches such as Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. The theory is illustrated through some examples taken from geophysical problems and their solution is discussed by performing inversion algorithms in the classroom.  2  Semester II

INTRODUCTION TO MONTE CARLO METHODS AND ITS APPLICATIONS TO PARTICLE PHYSICS
(to be defined) Introduction to Monte Carlo methods and its applications to Particle PhysicsProgram:  1  INTRODUCTION TO MONTE CARLO METHODS AND ITS APPLICATIONS TO PARTICLE PHYSICSMonte Carlo methods are widely used in Experimental and Applied Physics. Geant4 is the most used toolkit to develop Monte Carlo simulations in High Energy Physic but its use span from radioprotection in Space missions to Radiobiology and Medical Applications of Physic. Geant4 is developed in C++ by a wide an international community and it is distributed under an Open Source license. The course will start introducing the general concepts of a Monte Carlo simulation for Nuclear and Particle Physic, which are common to all the code in the field, such as FLUKA and MNCP, besides Geant4. We will then focus on Geant4 and, after a short introduction about the most used features of C++ in Geant4, we will see how to develop a simple but complete simulation with a practical example. In such an example we will see the simulation of a segmented calorimeter and it will give us the opportunity to see how to generate different primaries, how to define the detector geometry, choose the Physic models and, finally, how to score observables in ROOT files
