This is a biennial course and will run in 2018/19 but will not run in 2019/20.

18 lectures & 7 tutorials

This course will primarily involve a combination of directed reading and presentations by the participants on topics chosen from Chapters 1-6 of the graduate text ‘Principles of Condensed Matter Physics’ by P. Chaikin and T. Lubensky (Cambridge University Press). The course will also entail group work and individual work on problems with hand-ins and/or teleconferenced presentation of solutions by the participants. Assessment will be based on performance in both the student presentations and selected problems.

Assessment: Continuous Assessment
