Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

These are the exercise sessions of the Course 260006 VO Advanced Statistical Physics and Soft Matter Physics (2018W) and they form one unity with the former. There will be one problem set distributed each week and it will be due 1 or 2 weeks later; here, "due" means that the problems will be discussed in class.

For students in the new Master's Curriculum: No exams exist on exercise classes and no separate note will be given, since the class and the exercises are conceived as one entity ("module"). Accordingly, there will be just an exam of the whole Course -- for details please visit the u:find link of 260006 VO Advanced Statistical Physics and Soft Matter Physics (2018W)

For students of the old Master's Curriculum: Arrangements will be made so that the Exercises be tested according to the rules and regulations of that Curriculum. Please visit the first class (October 5, 9:00 pm at the Schrödinger Lecture Hall) for details.
