3. Course contents *

In this course, the consequences of symmetry in quantum physics are being examined. The most important concepts are being introduced: starting from abstract group theory, point groups, representation theory, matrix-element theorems, basic elements of the Lie-group SO(2), and space groups. Applications are considered in atomic, molecular, solid state and elementary particle physics.
