preliminary and changes might occur.
Other changes might occur but are not so likely.
SR: Frl 1,2,3

GR and its applications: rest
There will be 3 optional midterm tests
("KS" short for
"kontrollskrivning") which can give bonus points (there is nothing to loose
by doing these tests!). In the last
exercise class before such a midterm test there will be a workshop
("RS" short for "räknestuga") where students can work on any
problem of interest or ask questions.
Source of Problems/appreviations
[C]= Ta-Pei Cheng: Relativity, gravitations and cosmology, Oxford
(2010) (=Course book)
[MOS]=problems taken from: J. Mickelsson, T. Ohlsson, H. Snellman:
compendium (2003) (available here;
you need not print this since he problem formulations are included in
[Oe1] below). The Numbers
inside [ ] refer
to (2005) edition of the compendium.)
[Oe1]=pdf file available here.
[Oe2]=pdf file available here.
[Oe3]=pdf file available here.
[Oe4]=pdf file available here.
[RQ]=Review question from [C],
"[RQ2] 1." means review question 1. from Chapter 2 in [C], etc.
"[C] 2.1" means "Problem 2.1 in [C]", etc.
Note that some of the assignments number differs
depending on edition of the book. If the number is given as 2.4/2.7,
the first number refers to the second edition and the second
number to the first edition!
Also if there is a number followed with a letter n, it means the
excercise only exist in the last edition, eg. 3.11n.
RS (short for
"räknestuga") = work shop where students should solve problems and
can ask the exercise class teacher for help explaining things KS (short for
"kontrollskrivning") = midterm test
The problems in paranthesis "(...)" in each exercise class are
The Question Box:
Due to homepage thieves, send all your questions for the
Question Box directly to Sofia, write in the subject line:
The Question Box.
The deadline to send in questions to the
Question Box will be the 10th of Mars. In the last excercise class
some questions from the Question Box will be choosen. Just ask for
you favourite problem!
