Learning activities:
Study of scientific literature and/or doing experimental or theoretical research.
Teaching support:
Teachers will be available for supervision.
Basic mathematics, computer science and physics. FYS381 must be taken before or in parallel with the course.
Recommended prerequisites:
Course group in physics. FYS200 Classical Physics.
Mandatory activity:
The project report is assessed and counts for 3/4 of the final grade. If several students collaborate on a single report, it must be possible to identify their individual contributions. Every student gives a presentation, presenting either a part of a collaborative project or an individual project. The presentation is assessed and counts 1/4 of the final grade.
