Prerequisite: C or better in Physics 131L or Physics 141L and concurrent registration in or previous completion of Mathematics 132 or 142 with a C or better. 

This second part of the threeterm calculusbased introductory sequence is devoted primarily to the study of electromagnetism. The emphasis is on the description of electric and magnetic phenomena in terms of fields. Topics to be covered include electrostatics and magnetostatics, electromagnetic induction, Maxwell’s equations, electromagnetic waves, and the characterization of energy and momentum in the electromagnetic field. The remainder of the course is taken up with basic properties of waves in general: wave kinematics, standing waves and resonance, and the Doppler effect. Three lecture periods and one laboratory period per week.

Prerequisite: C or better in Physics 231L and Mathematics 231. 

This course focuses on mathematical methods essential to the expression and application of the laws of physics. It is designed to provide a mathematics background for other upperlevel physics courses and for physics research, and thus ideally should be taken in the spring of the sophomore year. Topics to be discussed may vary somewhat from year to year depending on the emphasis of the instructor, but will ordinarily include elements of vector analysis, differential geometry, linear algebra, functions of a complex variable, Fourier analysis, and some of the special functions of mathematical physics. Additional topics, such as probability theory, the calculus of variations, or an introduction to group theory, may be taken up if time permits.

Prerequisite: C or better in Physics 231L and 232L 

An introduction to the fundamental physics which governs the properties of solids at a microscopic level. Topics will include crystal structures and symmetries, phonons, diffraction, reciprocal space, optical properties, superconductivity, magnetism, band theory, and the electronic properties of conductors and semiconductors. Time permitting, applications in the fields of materials science and nanotechnology will be considered.

This course is open only to senior Physics majors. 

This exercise is intended to familiarize the student with a problem of current interest in physics, and to develop his or her ability to gather and interpret the information relevant to the problem. During the fall semester each senior student will meet with an assigned faculty adviser to plan an essay or research project to be completed during the year. Topics may involve any aspects of physics, including its various applications. While students may write on original research they have undertaken, they are not required to do so. This exercise is required for the physics major.

This course provides an introduction to current views of the contents, structure, and evolution of the astronomical universe outside our solar system. Topics to be considered include cosmology, stellar evolution, the discovery of neutron stars, the formation of galaxies, the "discovery" of our own galaxy, and the search for black holes. Occasional viewing sessions and other observational exercises will be assigned.
