The course gives an introduction into the theory of collective quantum phenomena in condensed matter systems. Fundamental concepts such as long-range order, spontaneous symmetry breaking, elementary and topological excitations are introduced. Their use for the understanding of the physical properties of a system is explained on several examples such as crystalline solid, superfluid, normal metal and superconductor.

This course is a brief introduction to common concepts in classical field theory used throughout theoretical physics in cosmology, elementary particle and condensed matter physics. Topics: Symmetries and conservation laws Spontaneous symmetry breaking and Goldstone bosons Solitons Perturbation theory Scattering

Building on the courses Effective Field Theory and Quantum Theory, this is a first course in the Quantum Theory of Fields, which consistently unifies special relativity with quantum mechanics. Topics: Quantum Mechanics from a Lagrangian perspective The path integral Spin and the Lorentz Group The Dirac Equation The theory of Quantum-ElectroDynamics Perturbation theory and elementary scattering processes Introduction to Renormalization, the renormallization group and the connection with critical phenomena
TUD
In SMO we discuss the experimental methods for, and the main results of the optical study of isolated molecules, nanocrystals and nanoparticles. The lectures scan a wide range of techniques and phenomena including fluid solutions, solid samples at room temperature, and low-temperature experiments with extremely high spectral resolution. The course is an opportunity to apply many concepts of molecular physics, statistical physics, solid state physics and plasmonics. Topics: Fluorescence spectroscopy Optical microscopy and resolution limits Correlation spectroscopy in fluid solutions Fluorescence resonance energy transfer High-resolution spectroscopy Interacting single molecules Semiconductor nanocrystals Plasmonic nanoparticles

The Advanced Biophysics course is intended for advanced master s students and Ph.D. students. It builds on the material covered in the course Biophysics, but completion of the latter is not required to enroll into this course. The student will obtain an understanding of the physical principles underlying the many facets of modern biological physics, as well as an appreciation of their biological context. Introductory lectures are combined with seminars in which current literature is discussed. Topics: Self-organized systems and pattern formation Protein folding Cellular networks Molecular motors Polymers and membranes Gene regulation

This course is an introduction to the modern theory of classical gravity. Generalizing from special relativity, we show the need for and will develop the formalism of differential geometry. This will allow us to study the motion of particles and fields in a gravitational field as motion through a curved spacetime. In turn this leads to the introduction of the Einstein field equations for the dynamics of the spacetime itself. Using these insights, we will study a variety of important physical consequences and applications, i.e. relativistic corrections to the Newtonian gravity, relativistic stars, gravitational waves, black holes and spacetime singularities, relativistic Big Bang cosmology. The course concludes with an outlook towards a quantum theory of gravity. Topics: Vectors, Tensors, Metrics and Manifolds (Riemannian geometry of curved spaces) Einstein s General Theory of Relativity Energy theorems and singularities Schwarzschild solution and simple black holes Gravitational Waves Friedmann-Robertson-Walker Cosmology Towards astrophysics, the Big Bang and our Universe

This course introduces you to the work life waiting for you ahead. This is a safe environment to practice skills needed at a work place. This is a place for you to understand who you are and how you work as part of a team. This is a place for innovation, for enthusiasm. This is a place to tek the responsibility of your actions. We are just the guides. Annukka, Nora and Ari

At the end of the study, the student will enter the labour market. To present themselves, it is common to do this by showing the designs, made during the study, by means of a portfolio folder. It is important that this portfolio is up to date and shows a selection of the best designs. By making this portfolio suitable for digital media, the students can easily present themselves internationally. During this course the student is taught in which way such a digital portfolio can be composed. During the course, the following aspects will be addressed: - research on the student's own goals for the portfolio - research on existing portfolio for references - practice with communicating a message - building webpages with HTML, CSS and jQuery - take diferent devices and screen sizes into account - graphic design, with emphasis on composition - use of color, fonts and other means to keep the attention of the viewer

The assignment is set up as a journey of discovery and development. The search starts off on the basis of inspirations (potentially coming from architecture, but possibly also from other disciplines such as painting, sculpture, music, cinema, nature or science) towards the evolvement of a personal statement in form, context and material, which is evocatively communicated, using graphical means and models. In the context of this creative exploration, participants actively experiment with a variety of visualisation techniques, working two-dimensionally as well as three-dimensionally. The central educational challenges of the Form & Inspiration course are: - Furthering the intellectual understanding of architectural issues; - Developing expressive communication and formal analysis skills; - Creating evocative project presentations and exhibits. These aspects are addressed and practiced in a series of targeted workshops, exercises and instructions and subsequently effectuated in individual spoken presentations accompanied by a project portfolio. Aspects of study include: - Conceptual, representational and analytical modelling (digital and particularly physical) - Sketching, expressive collage- and design imaging, combining various materials; - Graphic design and lay-out, diagrams and sketches, signs and symbols; - Spoken and written text, static and dynamic use of pictures, sounds and music; - Evocative personal presentation before the group of participants and tutors. During the final Presentation sessions each student will put forward a concise project presentation, allowing for discussions concerning potential, content and delivery. Project evaluations will be made on the basis of the individual study process and products.
