- I would have preferred to discuss a little bit more the physical meaning/interpretation of the theory rather than the 'technical part'. Because I think, that's the hard thing about this course and it would also make the lectures more interesting. (Neutral - no opinion)

- I think that's not a property of the course but of the theory. Regarding this, the mathematical part was done well in my opinion. (Very difficult)

- Overall very good but in the last part of the course it is far too condensed to be self-sustainable. I had to frequently consult the internet when reading the last few chapters. (Good)

- Sometimes a little bit too technical. But I also think that it is quite hard to 'pack' this broad topic in 1.5 periods. So maybe some more hours would have given the opinion to focus also on the interpretation part. (Good)

- Sorry, don't understand the question. (?)
- It was very good to be able to see how the problems should be solved (Good)

Please, enter any further comments on the course below.

- Very good course, perhaps the last homework set could be remade to match the difficulty of the first two better.
