The course gives a general introduction to the rich (quantum-mechanical) phenomena and processes
of nuclear physics
and how they form the structure of matter both at the sub-atomic and cosmic scales.
The basic experimental methods are also introduced.
The course programme of the Part II can be found here.
The courses 53337-Structure of Matter and 53703-Basics of Quantum Physics (or equivalent) are assumed as a prerequisite.
Quantum mechanics I (53716) is extremely recommendable.

The problem session time has been moved back to Thursday 16-18!
The solutions should be tentatively turned in for grading by Wednesday before 16:00 o'clock in
the pigeonhole marked "Nuclear Physics" in the grey metal cabinet
in the 2nd floor lobby of the Physicum A-wing.
