Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Aim: Filling the gap between the introductory and the advanced courses on theoretical particle physics. Excellent knowledge of theoretical mechnics, electrodynamics (manifestly covariant form), quantum mechanics and the mathematical methods of theoretical physics are mandatory.

Contents: Symmetries in classical mechanics and field theory, Noether theorem, Lie groups and Lie algebras, representation theory of rotation- , Lorentz- and Poincare- group.

Method: Ex cathedra teaching.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam. No means of aid permitted.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

A positive grading requires at least at least 50% of the points.

less than 50% of the total number of points: 5
at least 50%, but less than 65%: 4
at least 65%, but less than 80%: 3
at least 80%, but less than 90%: 2
at least 90%: 1

Examination topics

Complete content of lecture. Theoretical questions and associated computational problems will be given.
