This course is part of the programs in Mathematical Physics, Atomic and Subatomic Physics, and the master program in Quantum Physics. It will be of interest also for students who have chosen other programs in physics, mathematics, and mechanics. The course will be given in English if necessary. NOTE that students who are not registered at KTH, e.g. students at Stockholm University, must apply to be admitted to the course, before the start of the course! See the KTH info! (This does not apply to PhD students!) 

Course informationStudy HandbookLink to course information for 2005Lectures: ca 30 hours. Prerequisites: A basic course in quantum mechanics, e.g. Kvantfysik 5A1450. Examination: Course material: The first 8 chapters of the following book covers
essentially the same material: You find here an introduction to the course with additional links (under preparation), and some Matlab files which could be useful Symmetry groupshave an essential role in practically all fields of
physics, in particular in all aspects of quantum physics.
The picture of a C60 molecule comes from Molecular Structure Laboratory at SUNY Stony Brook.
