FYS4545 – Resonances in Atomic Nuclei
Changes in the course due to coronavirus
Autumn 2020 we plan for teaching and examinations to be conducted as described in the course description and on semester pages. However, changes may occur due to the corona situation. You will receive notifications about any changes at the semester page and/or in Canvas.
Spring 2020: Teaching and examinations was digitilized. See changes and common guidelines for exams at the MN faculty spring 2020.
The course covers resonance phenomena in atomic nuclei: giant dipole resonances, pygmy resonance and scissor resonance. The course gives an introduction to the theoretical background for these resonances, numerical calculations and how such phenomena are explored experimentally.
After completing the course:
- You will have knowledge of different resonance types in atomic nuclei and how these phenomena are interpreted
- You will acquire the theoretical background for the understanding of resonance phenomena
- Be able to describe experimental methods to study resonance phenomena in atomic nuclei
- Be able to apply codes for numerical calculations of resonances in atomic nuclei.
Admission to the course
Students who are admitted to study programmes at UiO must each semester register which courses and exams they wish to sign up for in Studentweb.
- 5 credits overlap with FYS9545 – Resonances in Atomic Nuclei.
The teaching will either be offered in the form of intensive teaching at summer schools; 2 weeks with 30 hours of lectures and 30 hours of hands on numerical calculations and student presentations, or as self-study.
Final home exam which counts 100 % towards the finale grade.
When writing your exercises make sure to familiarize yourself with the rules for use of sources and citations.
Breach of these rules may lead to suspicion of attempted cheating.
It will also be counted as one of the three attempts to sit the exam for this course, if you sit the exam for one of the following courses: FYS9545 – Resonances in Atomic Nuclei
