The course is divided into three parts:
Below is a listing of the course contents:
Course literature and other recommended literature:

See the page Teachers.
The course homepage can be found at: http://courses.physics.kth.se/5A1326/
The homepage will be updated throughout the course. A problem session log of what has been treated during the sessions will be available.
During the course, four non-compulsory homework problems will be handed out. For each set of homework problems passed by a student, one (1) bonus point is awarded at the course examinations during the academic year 2005-2006. Thus, a total of four (4) bonus points can be awarded.
Note! The solutions to the homework problems must be handwritten.
Even if the homework problems are non-compulsory, they are strongly recommended as the bonus points are often the difference between pass and fail on the final exam.
One written exam (TEN1; 4 credits). The exam is a mixture of theory and problem solving assignments. The exam consists of six problems, each of which can give three (3) points, i.e., the maximum attainable score is 18 points, the bonus points from the homework problems are then added to this score. The only allowed aid for the examination is the collection of formulas at the end of the course compendium, copies of this will be available at the exam - you are not allowed to bring your own copy. The exam is graded with U, 3, 4, or 5. The exam results will be posted outside the student expedition.
Old exams can be downloaded from the course homepage.
Examiners: Jouko Mickelsson och Håkan Snellman.
