Teaching

  • PH-112 Physics of Fields and Matter

    The module will first introduce static electric and magnetic fields, in principle as two separated subjects, before electromagnetic force is introduced to describe the force on particles due to electromagnetic fields. Basic electrical circuits will be introduced. This module proceeds by introducing the key fundamentals of kinetic theory, thermodynamics and the structure of matter.

  • PH-205 Quantum Mechanics I

    The student will learn basics of Quantum Mechanis, basically, the infinite square well, some problems with simple potentials to sove the Scroedinger equation. Then the oscillator is studied, using the perspective of creation and anhilatation operators, so useful in Quantum Field Theory. Finally, basics of the angular momentum in Quantum Mechanics is covered. The module has a view on simple calculable problems, the effect of measurement and the idea of a complete basis of states, ideas that repeat themselves in all the cases above mentioned.

  • PH-221 Electromagnetism and Special Relativity I

    This module introduces the fundamental principles of special relativity and applies them to relativistic particle dynamics and basic electromagnetism.
