PHYSICS 682, Spring 2020

Final projects

For your final project, I ask you to pick a topic related to the course material, but not adequately covered in class. You should identify one or a few references that you will read and base your report on. Please provide a first indication of your project, with a list of references, on the Homework #8 assignment due on April 13.

Your finished project should consist of two parts:

A written extended abstract
An oral presentation
Suggested topics
The following list of suggested topics is far from complete; you are encouraged to modify these suggestions, or come up with your own ideas.

You may want to start by looking at the list of suggestions that I made the last time I taught a version of this course in 2016, which comes with suggested references:

Other and newer topics might include

I will probably add to this list as I think of other possibilities. You can find references for some of these topics in the text. For others, ask me for references.
