The Physics department offers the following courses:
PHYS 30471 Electricity & Magnetism
This course covers electro- and magnetostatics, Laplace's and Poisson's equations, boundary value problems, multipole fields, dielectric and magnetic phenomena, and Maxwell's equations. Prerequisite: PHYS 20454.
PHYS 50501 Introduction to Solid State Physics
The course is intended to introduce the principles of the behavior electrons and phonons in solids, advanced concepts and applications, such as low-dimensional systems and superconductivity, and set the conceptual framework needed for future study and graduate research in condensed matter physics or technology-related industry. Topics will iinclude: cystal structure and diffraction, phonons and heat capacity, free electron gas and elementary band theory, semiconductors, magnetism, and superconductivity.
PHYS 70007 Quantum Mechanics I
This course covers general Hilbert space formulation of quantum mechanics, Schrödinger vs. Heisenberg picture, harmonic oscillator, the Coulomb problem, the Bohm-Aharonov effect, the theory of angular momentum, EPR correlations, and Bell's inequality. (Every year, core requirement.)
PHYS 83300 Atomic Physics Seminar
