The second set tests whether you can properly set up Feynman rules and use them to compute physical quantities.Both sets are estimated to take 25‐30 hours of work. You solve the problem sets individually, and return a report in the form of a scientific work note – something that you would share with colleagues in the lab to explain to them what you did. That means your reports will be evaluated not only on the correctness of the results, but also on your presentation and self‐critical discussion of the results obtained. Stick to the deadline: post‐deadline reports are evaluated, but the grade is halved. You receive feedback on the reports, and in case the report is deemed insufficient to pass, you have a chance to correct it using this feedback.
Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
A bit of knowledge on solid state physics of course does not harm, but if you do not yet know about phonons or bands, do not worry. You will learn about them (again) in the context of this course.
Finally, you should know some numerical methods. Sadly, many interesting problems do not reduce to easy analytic solutions, and you must be able to use a computer to find the minimum of a function, to find the roots of an equation, and to plot the results as a good quality graph.
