The total mark is determined based on a final exam and the student's activity in exercise classes and group projects.


After passing the course the student will have knowledge of why quantum mechanics is required for certain problems and how basic quantum mechanics works. Student can solve problems related to simple quantum mechanical setups using Schrödinger equation. The student knows how the quantum states and wave functions can be solved for hydrogen atom. The student knows the basics of statistical physics and can use them for properties of thermal radiation.
