Introduction to compact operators
The aim of this session is to cover the basic theory of compact linear operators on Banach spaces. This includes definitions and statements of the background and main results, with illustrative examples and some proofs. Target audience: This material is accessible to anyone who has a basic knowledge of metric space topology, and who knows what a bounded linear operator on a Banach space is. It is most likely to be suitable for postgraduate students or final year undergraduates.

Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Quantum Physics
In this session we will look at the ideas present in quantum physics.
Your final year project and your future career plans
Getting you to think tactically about choosing your final year project so that you can use it to improve your employability in the field of your choice on completion of your degree.
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in 2007-2008 and 2009-2010. This module introduces mathematical analysis building upon the experience of limits of sequences and properties of real numbers and on calculus. It includes limits and continuity of functions between Euclidean spaces, differentiation and integration. A variety of very important new concepts are introduced by investigating the properties of numerous examples, and developing the a
Microscopy with light and electrons
This is a third edition of the Electron Microscopy and Analysis textbook, which was published by Taylor and Francis Books UK in 2001 (ISBN 0748409688). It deals with several sophisticated techniques for magnifying images of very small objects by large amounts - especially in a physical science context. Consisting of seven chapters, presented as separate files the resource incorporates questions and answers in each chapter for ease of learning. Equally as relevant for material scientists and bios

Interdisciplinary Science Science of the Invisible Student Document
In Science of the Invisible you will explore the structure of microscopic objects from cells to molecules to atoms. At the smallest scale the world is governed by quantum mechanics which controls the properties of atoms and their binding to form molecules. You will also learn about the states of matter, gases liquids and solids, and how their properties arise from the properties of their constituents.

Core Physics PBL – White Knuckle Ride.
White Knuckle Ride’ is a Group Research Project, undertaken by students organised into small groups working as teams. Most, if not all, of the required theory can be found in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler). You will have four laboratory sessions to perform the experiments, as well as two workshops with facilitators. For each of the workshops you should prepare answers to set question, which will be marked at the workshops. These workshop questions are designe
Introductory Quantum Chemsitry
A series of eight lectures on fundamental quantum chemistry. Topics covered include, the photoelectric effect, the de Broglie relationship, Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, Schrodingers equation, particle in a box, particle on a ring, particle on a sphere, hydrogenic atoms, the rigid rotor.
