Course Structure

Traditional lectures

Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.
Learning assessment may also be carried out on line, should the conditions require it.

Detailed Course Content

Classical and relativistic mechanics, classical electromagnetism.

Quantum mechanics, foundations and simple applications.

Approximate methods (perturbative and variational methods)
