The basic material is studied by a combination of lectures, self-study, and
There will be exercise lessons (individual help, as well
as solutions on white board) twice per week.
The project work will
be performed in small groups of up to four students.
Towards the end of the course, each group shall present their
project to their fellow students, giving a short talk at a
Attendance to the whole workshop, and active participation in the
project presentation, is mandatory.
There is a written exam at the end of the course.
Schedule and dates HT 2016
- Introduction meeting during the first lecture on
Wednesday, August 31, 2016, 8:15 sharp, in lecture hall
FYS:K404. In the introduction meeting, we discuss some of the
practical matters, also regarding the project work. A short
overview of the course material is given. We then begin directly
with the first lecture.

SUMMARY LECTURE wednesday
oct 19 at 9:00 in K404
Requirements - project workshop
- Passing the written exam. The student shall demonstrate that
he/she can apply the material discussed in the lecture to solve
the exercise problems.
- Project (in groups of up to max. four students) with oral
presentation (in English!) by each student. Assignments will be
given on a first-come-first-serve basis after the project
introduction in week 3 of the course. Participation in the
project workshop is mandatory.
- PROJECT REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!
- The date for the project workshop is
now CHANGED to October 18, 8:45-13:00. This in order to make it possible to still
have classroom teaching in the last week of the course,
where we will summarize the material and go through some
old exams as well.
assignments have been communicated by e-mail.
Literature and Exercises
LECTURE NOTES can be
Andreas' lecture on time-dependent perturbation theory and links
to recent research on quantum cascade lasers, click here
(the content of the lecture will not be part of the exam!)
sheet for each week will be uploaded here at the latest after the
wednesday lecture. Full solutions will be uploaded A
WEEK LATER, together with the new sheet. BUT - please note
that it is pointless to complain that you want the solutions
already at the same time when the exercises are handed out.
You have to try and calculate yourself first! There will be no
exception from this rule.

In addition, the following books are recommended as a primary
source to read up on the material:
- "Quantum Mechanics" by B. H. Bransden & C.
J. Joachain, 2nd Edition,
(Longman, New Jersey, 2000) ISBN 0582356911.
- "Modern Quantum
Mechanics" by J. J. Sakurai, Pearson Education, Upper
Saddle River, 2010, ISBN 9781292024103
(older edition from 1994 is equally fine).

Exercises - NN.
For questions on the lectures, you can come Fridays
at 12-13 to Stephanie's office, B303.
Questions on the excercises are best and
preferably discussed in the exercise hours!
Please attend the exercises, as they are essential for your
understanding of the course material.
