Physics & Astronomy 750:634
Seminar in Physics
Spring Semester 2020

This Seminar presents faculty of the Physics and Astronomy program discussing their current research.   All first-year graduate students are expected to attend -- attendance is taken -- and everyone else is welcome.

The Seminar meets Tuesdays at 5-6 pm in room 385E of the Serin Physics.

Starting after spring break the seminar will move to webex so we can all socially distance ourselves appropriately. I will setup meetings and email a webex meeting link to the class and speaker each Tuesday.
