After successful participation in the module the student can
use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.
They have learned about detectors, detection technics, and analysis methods in astro-particle physics.

Literature will be made available.
Power-point presentations. Presentation materials will be provided as well as complementary literature.
Specialized literature to the individual topics of the seminar talks will be provided;
own literature search.
Description of exams and course work
In the course of the seminar each student individually prepares a talk on a topic of current research. Based on this talk the learning outcome is tested.
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
