Undergraduate Course: Mathematical Physics Honours Project (PHYS10107)
|School||School of Physics and Astronomy
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||The Mathematical Physics Honours Project involves an extended theoretical derivation and calculation in an area of mathematical physics at the level of a typical Senior Honours course. Students will be offered a number of projects, each outlining a specified extract from a recommended text, or in specially written notes. It will be the student's task to understand in detail the intermediate steps of the calculation. In addition, they will have to think about a set of identified issues concerning the calculation.
