Course Aim
To give knowledge of mechanical-, electromatic-, and quantum mechanical waves, to give knowledge of atoms, molecules, and solids and their physical properties. The course will also train experimental problem- solving techniques and gives an introduction to vocal presentation.

- pi-groupes - vocal presentation - mathematical description of waves - the wave equation - mechanical waves in solids, liquids and gases - superposition of waves - acoustics - the doppler effect - electromagnetic waves - polarization - intterferance and diffraction - reflection, refraction, dispersion - coherence, holography

The teaching is given in form of lectures and compulsory laboratory work.The lectures contain overview of theory, demonstrations and problem solving.

Written exam at the end of the course.
