PHYSICS 492 SPRING
(including lecture notes, problem
sets and hw solutions)
mechnics encompasses virtually all of modern physics. We will
frequently discuss topics of current interest, emphasizing
recent experiments that test quantum mechanics. Why else would anyone
believe such a kooky theory?
- grading: The
grades will be an average
of problem sets, class and problem session participation (see the recapitulation) ,
two tests, and a
- problems session: F
1200-1250 Particiption is strongly encouraged.
the start of each class I will pick a student to summarize (without
notes) the previous lecture. If you have missed the previous
class, you will be expected to have reviewed the lecture notes.
