You can take the exam for this unit if you passed the following exam(s):
The main goal of the course is to give to the students a basic introduction to advanced techniques used in the framework of statistical physics of fields. These techniques are useful to comprehend physical phenomena which are subject of research in modern physics, spanning from condensed matter to high energy physics.
Verify and stimulate the basic knowledge on statistical physics. To take on recent arguments in the simplest possible context so to stimulate interest for the recent deveopments of statistical mechanics.
Specifically, the learning outcomes of the course are:
The attendance of the mandatory courses of the first semester of the Master in Physics, and in the particular the course "Theoretical Physics", is desirable in order to understand the arguments which will be discussed during the course.
Blackboard lectures and exercise sessions.
Where possible the symbolic calculus program Mathematica will be used to illustrate applications of the techniques explained during the course.
