Oral examination

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The goal is to introduce the students to the foundations of Relativistic Quantum Physics. The general framework of Local Quantum Physics unites the basic principles of (special) relativity and quantum mechanics in a formalism where physical consequences of the poastulates can be anlysed by mathematical means. The course aims at acquainting the students with these principles and some of the fundamenetal insights that have been derived from them.
