Part
II of a calculus-based survey which will focus on electricity and magnetism,
light, electromagnetic radiation, and optics. The course stresses ideas - the
unifying principles and characteristic models of physics. Labs develop the
critical ability to elicit understanding of our physical world. Prerequisites: Physics 141, Mathematics 141. Class

(2 credits) This is the second part of a two-part course
series that introduces mathematical topics and techniques that are commonly
encountered in the physical sciences, including complex numbers and analytic
functions, Fourier series and orthogonal functions, standard types of partial
differential equations, and special functions.
Prerequisites: MATH 141 and 142,
or the equivalent. Recommended:
PHYS 221, Mathematical Methods of Physics I. Class

This
course is designed to teach computational techniques that can be used to solve
problems in the sciences, generally in physics and engineering. Students will
spend most of their time programming specific physical problems as well as
learning the theory behind the phenomena being modeled. No prior experience
with computer programming is required. Students will be exposed to the Python
programming language and its visual capabilities through VPython,
as well as Structured Query Language (SQL) and MATLAB. Topics will include
Newtonian Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Quantum Mechanics and Astronomy. As part
of this course, students are required to complete an individual class project.
Prerequisites: PHYS 141 and MATH 141, or
equivalent experience.
The Course
will meet twice a week for 2 hours each session. The students will use their
laptops or Physics program laptops, so no access to a computer lab will be
necessary except for a few sessions in a lab with MATLAB available. Class

Introduces
the Hilbert space formalism of quantum mechanics and uses it to examine simple
quantum systems including objects in potential wells, hydrogen atom electronic
states, and the quantum harmonic oscillator.
Additional material includes perturbation theory, quantized angular
momentum, and particle scattering.
