- In the older M.Sc. syllabus, I had revised PH-521 (Mathematical Physics) and designed new courses: PH-671(General Relativity), PH-674(Advanced Mathematical Physics), PH-684(Quantum Field Theory) and PH-694(Advanced Quantum Field Theory). In the newer integrated/regular M.Sc. syllabus, I was involved in designing the following courses: PH-505(Mathematical Physics), PH-503(Quantum Mechanics-I), PH-508(Quantum Mechanics-II), PH-510 (Nuclear and Particle Physics), PH-619(A Primer in Quantum Field Theory), PH-623 (General Relativity) and PH-625(Particle Physics).
