This page contains the lecture notes from a course I taught at QMW in the Autumn term of 1998 to third-year physics students.
The first draft of the lecture notes is already written. The course in naturally divided into different topics, and this is reflected in the organisation of the notes.
Alternatively you can get the complete set of notes, which are hyperlinked for ease of navigation.
The following books are recommended, either to accompany the course or for further reading.
