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 – study where you are

Perhaps you would like to study in the Swedish mountains, in a big city, or at home close to family? Many of our programmes and courses are offered in distance format.

Studying at a distance can be done in different ways, either entirely without physical gatherings or with only a few gatherings on campus or at one of our learning centres. The common denominator is that a large part of your studies takes place online. You communicate with the teacher and other students with the help of a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures and online meetings.

The benefit of distance studies is the flexibility, something that is valuable if you want to be free to decide when and where you want to study. Some compulsory elements on you course or programme may take place during office hours, even though they are online.
