Cold Atomic Gases and Bose-Einstein Condensation
    Proseminar in Theoretical Physics ETH Zurich - SS 03
General Information
The timetable for the proseminar can be found here. We will meet each Monday (see timetable) at 10:30 (till 13:30) in the Pauli Zimmer (HPZ E9). Please be sure to contact your respective assistant (listed on the timetable) at least six weeks before your talk to discuss logistics. Be sure to keep your assistant updated of your work at least once a week and hand in your results two weeks before your schedules talk. Remember that you are supposed to give a "professional" talk with either LaTeX or PowerPoint. If you do not know how to do this, ask your assistant immediately for assistance.
More information can be found on the handout which you obtained on the first meeting. PostScript and PDF version can be downloaded here.

Entry Exam
The entry exam will be held on the first meeting, March 30, 2003. Pleas be sure to study during the vacation break. If you fail the exam, you will not be allowed to participate in the proseminar.
