Aims, contents and method of the course

This course is aimed at students pursuing Thesis work (at any level)
in quantum optomechanics or a closely related discipline.
The Quantum regime of massive mechanical systems opens up a new
parameter-regime for experimental physics. Relevant topics range from
quantum measurement to macroscopic quantum superpositions. We will
discuss relevant important literature on that topic.
