I have a schedule too

  • Statistical Mechanics -- Tue, Thu 11:00-12:15

  • Math Methods II -- Mon, Wed, Fri 10:00-11:00

  • Atomic and Molecular Physics -- Mon, Wed, Fri 9:00-10:00
Math Methods II is a continuation from last semester. It promises to be mostly special functions and differential equations. It will be a lot of review of material I've seen before, but not so explicitly. There is a good chance that we will be doing Group Theory later in the semester, which would be pretty interesting.

Stat Mech is also required, and is unlikely to be too surprising. Some of the applications can be pretty interesting. The base material is pretty dry.

Atomic and Molecular is likely to be John Perdew talking about density functional theory, which is his area of research. It's going to be heavy theory, and unlikely to be at all useful to my own research, but it's interesting stuff to study.

I'm also continuing research for Wayne Reed, and TA'ing. I have the same TA assignment as last time: one section of the 101 lab, and grading papers for one section of 101 lecture.
