到達目標 【日本語】 Objectives of the Course(JPN))   

到達目標 【英語】 Objectives of the Course   The objective of this course is to know the different theories that have been introduced for the understanding of the behavior of electrons and atoms in solids, starting from the most simple approaches and then introducing more advanced theories. Students will then be able to understand the origins and mechanisms of many electrical and thermal properties of materials. The universality of concepts (e.g. quasiparticle behavior; effects of periodicity in the theoretical framework) will be emphasized. The students will master the mathematical tools necessary to describe the items listed in the course content.

成績評価の方法と基準 Course Evaluation Method and Criteria   Grades will be based on homework (30%), a midterm examination (30%) and a final examination (40%). 


不可(F)と欠席(W)の基準 Criteria for "Fail (F)" & "Absent (W)" grades   Class attendance is required  absentee must give a valid reason (e.g. doctor’s certificate). A student will receive the "Absent (W)" grade if his attendance is below 10/15 or he does not sit for an Examination, without valid reason. Otherwise, a student who wishes to receive the "Absent (W)" grade must inform the teacher until the day of the Final Examination.

課外学習等（授業時間外学習の指示） Study Load(Selfdirected Learning Outside Course Hours)   In general, after a lecture introducing new concepts, a small report will have to be submitted by the following lecture, making a total of about 13 reports. Students should spend a few hours per week to study lecture materials and do the reports.

履修の際のアドバイス Advice   

授業開講形態等 Lecture format, etc.   By default classes will be facetoface.
Live lectures via MS Teams or Ondemand lectures may also be considered in very special circumstances. 


遠隔授業（オンデマンド型）で行う場合の追加措置 Additional measures for remote class (ondemand class)   In remote classes (live lectures via MS Teams), students will be able to ask questions and discuss the lecture content anytime.
Additionally, students could have discussions in the NUCT forum.
