Description

Master’s Programme in Theoretical and Computational Methods is responsible for the course.

Modules where the course belong to:

  • TCM300 Advanced Studies in Theoretical and Computational Methods
  • PAP300 Advanced Studies in Particle Physics and Astrophysical Sciences
    Optional for:
    1. Study Track in Particle Physics and Cosmology

The course is available to students from other degree programmes.

Quantum Mechanics IIA,IIB; Mathematical Methods in Physics.

Introductory Particle Physics; Higgs Physics.

Understanding of basic concepts and methods of quantum field theory including free scalar and fermion fields, scattering amplitudes and cross sections, elements of quantum electrodynamics and Yukawa model.

After Quantum Mechanics and Mathematical Methods in Physics have been completed.

The course will be offered in autumn term.

Class attendance is strongly encouraged. Homework is assigned once a week and contributes 25% to the final grade, while the final exam contributes 75%. There are bonus points for in-class activities.
