Teaching
Interests: During the development of a graduate course in
classical electrodynamics I became heavily involved in the use of
computers in graduate education. I found that my students can use
computer algebra software (Mathematica, Maple, etc.) to solve more
realistic homework problems, visualize their answers, and reduce the
algebraic tedium. The computer also allows me to distribute the
related courseware, and provide more realistic classroom
demonstrations in the various electronic classrooms on campus. I
developed a complete set of courseware for Graduate
Electrodynamics, and graduate Solid
State Physics consisting of notes, homework assignments and
solutions. I am npw teaching Advanced
Solid State Physics. To some extent, I follow the recent
monograph by Piers Coleman (click on his figure below for the course
web page and links to relevant texts). This work is sponsored by the
NSF.
