Quantum Mechanics
Rasoanaivo, René Yves (20180312)The module describes the experimental findings that lead to a new concept and a new scientific attitude towards physical phenomena at the microscopic level. In addition, the module describes the formal terminology based ... 
Mathematical Physics II
Youm, Issakha (20180312)This Mathematical Physics II module builds on the Mathematical Physics I module. It addresses differential and integral calculus tools for functions (scalar and vector) of multiple variables. It reviews the areas of ... 
Geometrical Optics and Physical Optics
A. Ramilison, Herimanda (20180313)In this module, the concept of light’s behavior when reflected from the same medium or at the interface between two different media will be treated. The construction of images obtained through optical systems and different ... 
Electronics
Kinyera Obwoya, Sam (20180314)Electronics is the study of the flow of charge through various materials and devices such as, semiconductors, resistors, inductors, capacitors, nanostructures, and vacuum tubes. All applications of electronics involve ... 
Solid State Physics
