Outline of topics covered in the course:
You will find we will cover all the material in Griffiths, Chapters 1-7.
Then we cover Chapter 8, sections 1 & 2 only, and Chapter 10 section 3 only.
PHYS 401 - offered in the winter term - covers the rest of Griffiths: the material in Chapters 8-10
|Tutorials:||For the first four weeks tutorials will be almost lecture style, but I'm willing to take interrupts of any kind from you and consider any homework problems. We'll review vector analysis and vector calculus, Dirac Delta functions, curvilinear coordinates, techniques for solving differential equations (Laplaces' equation, specificly) and applications in E&M. Then we'll do worked examples, review of mathematical techniques, homework problems, midterm exam problems, and any concepts/ problems you want to discuss.|
