My name is Ingemar Bengtsson, and I have
been a lecturer at Fysikum in
Of course,
not all my papers are published.
If any youngster wants to see what a
"preprint" used to look like, here is one:
With Karol Zyczkowski from Krakow
I have written a book on quantum mechanics, seen through our eyes. The Cambridge University Press published the second
edition in 2017:
I occasionally try to write popular
science articles. They are all in Swedish:
If you want to hear me trying to explain gravity (på svenska), you can do it from home.
In the department I am a member of the "KOMKO" group, which includes the
(informal) Relativity group (it has
a little homepage of its own) and the group for Quantum Information and Quantum Optics. Also,
Edwin Langmann (KTH) and I are organizing a weekly seminar in Mathematical Physics (on
Thursdays at 11 o'clock).
My views on teaching happen to be identical to those of Fred Hoyle, as
expressed in " The Universe: Past and present reflections
" (Ann. Rev. Astr. Astrophys. 1982), so there is no need to repeat them here.
This academic year I teach Electrodynamics I, Introduction to Quantum
Information and Quantum Computing, and (as it turns out) Analytical Mechanics.
· Elektrodynamik I. The book for the course is no less than that of J. D. Jackson, 3d ed. The course program for 2018 is on the course homepage . The lecture notes below have just a little to do with this course.
· Kvantinformation och kvantdatorer. Loosely based on the book by Stenholm and Suominen: Quantum Approach to Informatics. For more information see the course homepage .
· Avancerad allmän relativitetsteori. The emphasis of this course was on gravitational collapse, black holes, and the like. It will not be given this year, but I leave the link to the homepage .
· Analytisk mekanik. I'm teaching this as an emergency measure. Information about the course is on the course homepage .
I enjoy
supervising Master's Theses and such things. I have made a little collection of all theses
that I saved the pdf files for on a special
thesis page.
