Unit Master's Programme in Theoretical and Computational Methods 

Target group 

Master’s Programme in Theoretical and Computational Methods is responsible for the course.

Modules where the course belong to:

  • TCM300 Advanced Studies in Theoretical and Computational Methods
  • PAP300 Advanced Studies in Particle Physics and Astrophysical Sciences
    Optional for:
    1. Study Track in Particle Physics and Cosmology

The course is available to students from other degree programmes.


The course is offered in the spring term, during IV period.

Learning outcomes 

The student knows the methods of second quantisation in non-relativistic many-body quantum mechanics and can apply these.  The student can quantize free boson and fermion fields. The student can quantize electromagnetic field and apply the theory to describe interaction of quantised matter and radiation.

Completion methods 

Course is completed either by submitted exercise problems and additional exam problems or alternatively by a final exam.


TCM302 Quantum mechanics IIa

  • Many-particle methods in non-relativistic quantum mechanics
  • Elements of quantum field theory.
  • Quantum theory of radiation.
Study materials and literature 

F. Schwabl: Advanced quantum mechanics.

Activities and teaching methods in support of learning 

Weekly lectures, independent work of the student, solutions to exercises will be submitted weekly and graded by the teaching assistant. The exercise problems are solved working in groups in tutored exercise sessions and also independently.

Assessment practices and criteria 

The grade is determined in a way agreed in the beginning of the course.
