Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of the seminar is to obtain a good understanding of (mostly classical) relativistic field theories. The seminar provides the prerequisites for a block lecture course on supergravity that is planned for the subsequent term.

Content: Scalar field theories and symmetries, Dirac field, Clifford algebras and spinors, gauge fields, Rarita-Schwinger field, supersymmetry

Assessment and permitted materials

Seminar talk and written summary

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Every participant gives a talk on a topic that is assigned at the beginning of the term, and hands in a written summary before. The talk and the summary are graded and contribute in equal parts to the total mark.

Examination topics
