Lecture course in topics of current interest. Several subjects are announced in each Class Schedule. Among them are semiconductor physics, magnetic resonance, surface physics, lattice dynamics, band theory of solids, crystal imperfections, nuclear structure, field theory, elementary particle physics, advanced statistical mechanics, plasma theory, astrophysics, atmospheric physics, group theory and applications. Course Information: Prerequisite: Determined for each offering; see Class Schedule.
GEOMETRY OF FIELD THEORY AND STRINGS. An accessible and self-contained treatment of the mathematics underlying quantum field theory and string theory, designed to prepare students for research in these fields. Some prior knowledge of differential geometry and/or quantum field theory is desirable but not mandatory. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor.
