2. express and demonstrate the main theorems used in physics ;
3. generalize and apply the techniques seen in the lectures to new problem in physics.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The teaching methods is traditional lecturing on the black board alternated with inquiry-based methods during collective discussions.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Evaluation is performed with a 2-hours long written exam dealing with the subjects and methods addressed during the lectures, but also with their application to new problems which have not been explicitly solved in the course.
