IMPORTANT
From Wednesday on, Tutorials will take place from 15:15 to ~17:15 to give people more time to take care of important bureaucratic obligations!
General Information
- The Crash Course starts with the first lecture on Monday, 5th of October at 10:00!
- All events (except for the lunch break) take place in the lecture hall of the "Institut für Physikalische und Theoretische Chemie, Wegelerstraße 12. Click here and here for directions
- No book is required to participate in the course. However, feel free to bring your quantum field theory book (if you own or have borrowed one) for the tutorials, if you want.
- Everyone is responsible for his/her own lunch, i.e. no 'group lunches' are planned. If people want to go to the Mensa, they are happy to join the tutors, though!
- The exercises in the afternoon will cover explicit calculations which are to be performed by the students, using the knowledge from the lecture. During the in-class exercises, tutors will be available the whole time for questions and additonal explanations. Additional short homework exercises should be solved independently until the next day.
- The optional drop-in centers are mainly for those who still have questions or problems with solving the exercises. Students who could easily solve the homework exercises do not have to come to these extra sessions.
Time Table
- 9:15 - 10:15: Optional "Drop-In Center" for homework problems and remaining questions (starting from Tuesday on)
- 10:15 - 12:00: Lecture (held by Prof. Drees) Lunch Break
- 15:15 - 17:15: In-Class Exericses (with 2 assisting tutors)
