- Best course book I've ever had!
- Generellt s? tyckte jag v?ldigt mycket om boken. Den tunga l?sningen speglas s?klart i det sv?ra ?mnet. Ibland ?nskades att vissa mellansteg skulle vias, men mycket av det fanns ocks? p? n?tet.
- Very appropriate.
- K?ndes lagom f?r vad den beh?vde f?rklara. Mer grupp-teori hade varit bra.
- Great litterature with lots of detail, but lacks a clear connection between group theory and SM.

- Going to the seminars, asking the course leader and doing the home assignments but it's a necessity to have read the course literature to do that. (Going to the seminars)
- The feedback could have been better. (Doing the home assignments)

- Kursen motsvarar ej 7.5 HP. Mycket mer tid kr?vdes. Kursen ?r en utan de mest intressanta jag l?st p? KTH och ?r utan tvekan ocks? den sv?raste. (Yes)
- MER HP! Sv?rast f?rtj?nade 7.5 HP jag tagit p? KTH hittils. (Yes)
- I had written a longer comment, but basically my point is that a bridge is needed between QFT and SM, preferrably around the time of non-abelian theories, preferrably as a lecture or as a short "kompendium". Specifically, chapter 15.4 on group theory needs a much less abstract "interpretation". The understanding of new concepts such as SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1), C(r) <-> C(G), the role of generators t_r, the left-right-handed groupings, etc., remained needlessly vague and abstract (for me at least) until the very end of the course. (Yes)
