Summary 
This collection of lectures and tutorial reviews by renowned experts focusses on the common computational approaches in use to unravel the static and dynamical behaviour of complex physical systems at the interface of physics, chemistry and biology. Paradigmatic examples of condensed matter physics are spin and structural glasses and protein folding, as well as their aggregation and adsorption to hard and soft surfaces, in physicochemical biology. Among the most prominent joint key features of the systems considered in this volume are rugged freeenergy landscapes. These generate metastabilit
