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 solutions should be tentatively turned in for grading at
Tuesday lecture or (about 14:00 o'clock) in
the pigeonhole marked "Nuclear Physics" in the grey metal cabinet
in the 2nd floor lobby of the Physicum A-wing.
