Would you rather have a book than lecturenotes?

3 svarande

Yes0 0%
No3 100%

- I think the lecture notes and reference litterature complement each other well. (No)
- The lecture notes are good to learn all the theory but a book could be helpful if it provides more background and examples. (No)

Did you look up things in the reference litterature?

- The reference literature is not available in the library, and it would be too expensive to buy all those books and then only read one chapter from each. (Sometimes)

- I would not consider that a criticism, though. In fact, I think the level of the exercises was very good. Not too difficult, but still challenging enough not to be boring. (Difficult)

- Its was hard to know in advance what type of problems we would learn to solve. (I do not know)

Comments and suggestions on how to improve the course

- I think the lecture notes were detailed enough for the major part of the course, but starting from linear response, things started getting a bit too sketchy at some points. Not a major problem, though.
- More examples. Provide a survey of what type of problems in which fields that can be solved using these techniques.
