Low1 20%
Very low0 0%

- If there was an 'Average' option between High and Low, I would choose that (High)
- Difficult to say since I didn't hand in the homework sets and missed some classes which made it harder to follow. (High)

Has there been much overlap with other courses?

5 svarande

Far too much overlap0 0%
Some overlap - mostly unnecessary0 0%
Some overlap - but useful as repetition2 40%
No overlap3 60%

- Sadly I didn't have time to do them. (?)
- Sometimes a bit difficult to understand the formulation. Covered the material pretty well except for the last bit. (Difficult)
- I would have liked if they were a little more involved/rigorous (Easy)

- No comments. (Good)
- Some written information regarding what chapters where covered in the lectures would have been nice for the students missing classes. (Good)

How did you find the course literature?

- Mostly because the books are so personal and one would have to look at 300 different places. Very good that many alternate books were presented. (Good)
- I didn't use all the books listed, however the chapters I read was nice. (Good)
- Again, I would choose average. The main problem is that there aren't many good beginners' books on Group Theory. (Poor)

- Very interactive due to the small class which is a good thing. (Very good)
- It would have been nice to know what would be covered in class. This would have helped a lot to keep up with what was going on! (Good)
- Would have liked the discussion in the lectures to be mathematically more formal/rigorous (Good)

How much time did you spend on the homework problem sets on average?

4 svarande

< 5 hours/set2 50%
5-10 hours/set1 25%
10-25 hours/set1 25%
25-50 hours/set0 0%
> 50 hours/set0 0%

- I did not do them. (?)
- I didn't submit any of them, but spent some time trying to work them out by myself (< 5 hours/set)

Please enter any further comments and opinions about the course:

- Very interesting course. Unfortunately too few classes to cover more than basics. Some insights into how group theory is used in particle physics from a more group theoretic point of view would have been nice.
- It would have been useful to get a lecture-wise outline of the topics to be covered, at the beginning. Also, I wish we had more time to discuss examples and applications. Towards the end, we discussed many new concepts and definitions without knowing what to do with them. Overall, I'm glad I attended the course. It was a good revision of the things I knew and a good introduction to some new topics.
