K1: The Candidate has advanced knowledge within the subject areas mathematics and physics
K2: The Candidate has broad knowledge of the scientific theories and methods of the subject areas.
K3: The Candidate has knowledge of the relevant numerical/computational tools and methods that are used in mathematics and physics, as well as experimental methods.
K4: The Candidate has knowledge of how the subject areas mathematics and physics are related to other natural and technological sciences.
K5: The Candidate has specialist knowledge within a smaller area of either mathematics or physics, in connection with the specialization course work and the Master project.
F1: The Candidate is able to analyse scientific problems on the basis of the history, traditions and social position specific to the subject areas.
F2: The Candidate is able to apply his/her knowlegde to carry out concrete computations and reasonings, and thereby derive results within central parts of the subject areas mathematics and physics, both for familiar and new problems.
F3: The Candidate is able to use relevant computational tools to analyse problems in mathematics and physics.
F4: The Candidate is able to apply relevant research methods and the subject matter in an independent and critical way, and to formulate and structure scientific reasoning.
F5: The Candidate is able to carry out a scientific investigation under supervision and in line with the ethical and scientific standards of the subject areas.
