Downloading Lectures & Homework/Exam Solutions: Some files are large! If you have a dial-up connection, this may mean long download times. So, it might be more efficient to SAVE the file & open it later, rather than open it directly. It also might be more efficient to go to the ATLC (library basement) & use a direct connection. I've tested all files using both Internet Explorer (IE) & Mozilla Firefox & all work well. Printing Solutions: If you use IE, there's a problem printing .jpg files. For some reason, these don't fit properly on the page when you "Print" from the screen, even though it looks ok on the screen. A way around this (cumbersome!) is to download the .jpg to a file & use a picture viewer to view & print it. Using Mozilla, this doesn't occur. I think its a defect in IE, not a problem with the .jpg files, which were always fine until the latest version of IE came out. Sorry!

Study Groups:
Forming study groups to collaborate on homework, etc. is an EXCELLENT idea! Its easier to learn stuff with friends' help! If you don't have friends in class, maybe you should make some! I strongly encourage you to form such groups! This is how physicists work in real situations! However, NO CONSULTATION with people who had this course previously is allowed! Also, NO use of problem solutions posted in previous years is allowed! This is on the honor system! It will do you no good to merely copy old solutions! Copying solutions will NOT teach you physics!

My Research: I need students! I do computational materials (solid state) theory. See my Homepage, Research Page, Publications Page & Conference Presentations Page for details. My last PhD Student (Ken Kambour) graduated in December, 2003. See his Abstract Dissertation for more details. NOTE: At present, I have no money to support an RA. However, that could change in the future!

WY Physics LogoThe WORLD YEAR OF PHYSICS 2005 marks 100 years since Albert Einstein published 3 pioneering papers (Relativity, Brownian Motion, Photoelectric Effect), which changed physics forever & are considered the beginning of "modern" physics! (He won the 1921 Nobel Prize for the Photoelectric Effect!).  The United Nations, the US Congress, & the governments & scientific societies of many countries have endorsed it. 2005 events will highlight the vitality & importance of physics & bring physics excitement to the public.
