- Mostly overlap with the course in relativistic quantum mechanics (Some overlap, but it was useful to go over the topics again)

- The first set was rather easy. The second set wasn't very good, in my opinion. It had a few very vague formulations, and a lot of the material wasn't covered very well or at all in the lectures and course literature. The third set was good, although it did have a lot of questions on neutrino physics which was a rather small part of the course. (Difficult)

- The seminars worked very well, in my opinion, as it not only allowed but encouraged everybody to discuss the course material. Also, although not technically part of the course, it was very interesting to talk to Sofia and Henrik about current research frontiers. (Good)

Please, enter any further comments on the course below.

- There were very few lectures, so many topics that were part of the course weren't covered.
- A little more communication between the lectures and the homework probs. Otherwise a good course!
