Mathematical Methods of Physics II

This is an upper level course in mathematical methods of physics. The course consists of 30 hours of lectures. At the end of the course there will be a 5 hour exam. In addition, there will be three homeworks in which you may turn in your solutions, but this is voluntary.

The main topics covered in the course include the elements of functional analysis, some bits of abstract algebra and group theory and finally the elements of topology and differential geometry. The different examples and applications from physics will be discussed throughout the course.


The course plan can be found here and the schedule can be consulted in the following link.

The following homeworks should be handed in:

The exam will be on the 22nd of March, from 9 am till 2 pm in the room Å4004. You can bring any notes and books to the exam. You are not allowed to use any electronic devices.
