Chapter 10
Systems of Interacting Particles
NOTE! Some of these files don't contain some special symbols, like a dot over a variable to indicate a time derivative (& a double dot to indicate a second time derivative) & an arrow over a variable to indicate a 3d vector. These were hand written in by me in the transparencies used in class. If you download these files, it is up to YOU, the student, to supply these missing pieces! Sorry! COPYRIGHT: All lectures are copyrighted & owned by Charles W. Myles! No reproduction and/or use of them other than by students  in this course  is allowed!
NOTE!!! Much of this is excerpted from and/or is combinations of various files found on the web.

Note: Lectures on Sects. 10.1 & 10.2 (Debye Model of Lattice Vibrations in Solids) are on the Ch. 7 Lecture Page!
