  • For being awarded the lecture grade you have to participate in a written exam on February 23, 2017; 10:00-12:30, Erwin-Schroedinger Hoersaal . For the preparation of the exam 4 questions are provided to the students from each topic (1. Renormalization, 2. Finite one-loop Corrections, 3. Chiral Perturbation Theory, 4. Astroparticle Physics - so 16 questions in total) two weeks prior to the exam. For the exam, 8 questions, selected by the lecturers out of the 16, are posed to the students, out of which each student selects 5 questions, where she/he has to select 4 questions from two of the topics and 1 question from a third one, so that the 5 selected questions always have to cover three topics. So each student dropps one of the topics completely for the exam. No means of aid are allowed during the exam except for your brain and writing utilities.
  • The questions for the four topics are available here
