Advanced quantum mechanics

7.5 credits

In this course we present some advanced topics in quantum mechanics, whose foundations were set in the course 4FY819 Quantum Mechanics II. Course content typically includes path integrals, an introduction to the formal scattering theory and relativistic wave equations, with additional input and variation from year to year. The student final project, which is part of the student evaluation, aims at applying some of the course content to research problems of present interest in modern condensed matter physics and quantum field theory.

Distance

To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.

However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.

There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
