This course introduces the fundamental components of
meteorology and how these are measured and forecast. Fundamentals include
pressure, temperature, humidity, radiation in the atmosphere (sunlight and
terrestrial), and cloud processes. The course will apply these principles to
the weather and climate system. We will explore regional and general
circulation patterns. Some portion of the course will be dedicated to
interpreting current weather events, reading weather maps, and other topical
weather/climate related issues of the week. Prerequisite: passing score on
Part I of the Mathematics Placement.

This course presents mathematical
methods that are useful in the physical sciences. While some proofs and
demonstrations are given, the emphasis is on the applications. Topics include:
complex functions, vector spaces, matrices, coordinate transformations, power
series, probability and statistics, and multivariable differentiation and
integration. Prerequisites: Mathematics 141142, or equivalent, and strong
preparation in physics comparable to Physics 141.

This course is an indepth
study of physical fields, particularly the vector and scalar fields used in
the study of charge, current, electricity, and magnetism. The course
builds up to a detailed understanding of the Maxwell Equations, both in
vacuum and in materials, which govern the allpervasive electromagnetic
interactions that are the dominant explanation for the behavior of light and
matter. Prerequisite: Physics 142. Corequisite: Physics
222 or Math 255.

Quantum mechanics is the
most successful scientific theory ever developed: spectacularly tested,
technologically paramount, conceptually revolutionary. This course will
provide a comprehensive introduction to this remarkable theory including the
matrix formulation governing light polarization and electronic spin and the
wave formulation governing the spatial and temporal behavior of
objects. After gaining an understanding of the formal structure of the
theory, the formalism is used to develop a precise description of the electronic
structure of atoms and molecules. Prerequisites: Physics 241 and either
Physics 221 or Math 242.
