Learning Outcomes
After the successful completion of the course, the students will have knowledge of modern theoretical models for the description of nuclear structure and nuclear matter. The students will be able to apply the theoretical models to more realistic systems (such as finite nuclei, nuclear reactions, neutron stars) using analytical mathematical and computational tools.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Work autonomously
  • Generate new research ideas
Course Content (Syllabus)
