Physics 464/511, Fall 2019


Anirvan Sengupta


The textbook is "Introduction to Mathematical Physics", by Michael T. Vaughn. You can use Arfken et al., "Mathematical Methods for Physicists", for some supplementary material. We are trying to cover the material in the chapters 1-8 in Vaughn's book.


The evaluation will depend upon several homework assignments, a mid-term and a final exam. The exams would be open book/notes and even with internet access. You just have to work by yourself. If you do badly while solving problems in time-bound exams, I would encourage you to come to me during office hours or otherwise, and try to solve problems on the blackboard.
