Currently Teaching

PHYS-275
1 Credits
This seminar will assist students in their preparation for the Physics Comprehensive Oral Exam (CORE) required at the end of the course by presenting a unified as opposed to topical approach to physics. Physics majors must pass this course before going on to 300-level Physics courses.
PHYS-321
3 Credits
This course is a continuation of PHYS-320, serving to introduce additional mathematical tools needed to solve intermediate and upper-level physics problems. Topics include special functions, series solutions to ordinary differential equations, solutions to partial differential equations in curvilinear coordinate systems, matrix techniques, and the calculus of variations.
PHYS-614
3 Credits
This course is a graduate level introduction to the modern formulation of quantum mechanics. Topics include Hilbert space, Dirac notation, quantum dynamics, Feynman’s formulation, representation theory, angular momentum, identical particles, approximation methods including perturbation theory, mixed states and density operators. The course will emphasize the underlying algebraic structure of the theory with an emphasis on current applications. Additional topics may include such topics as scattering theory, the Dirac equation, quantum fields, and atom-photon interactions.
