Density Functional Theory
My Graduate School Thesis Advisor's Page A good starting point if you are interested in D.F.T. D.F.T. and Me Someday this will be a layman's description of why I like D.F.T.

To read the .ps files, you will need a postscript reader. Don't worry GSview, my favorite, is free: Go get it!

Notes, term papers, and other scraps:
My Unix Reference Card My Crash Course in GNUPLOT Some Basic Linux Setup Steps
Some General Relativity Notes Some curt notes about special relativity and general relativity followed by a series of problems which I had to do for my general relativity class. An Introduction to Electron Spectroscopy and the Auger Effect - My senior thesis at Amherst College Automation of a Langmuir Trough - A summer project at the L.R.S.M. at the University of Pennsylvania
A Brief Introduction to Supersymmetry - A final project written for an introductory graduate particle physics class Demystifying Dirac's Bra and Ket Notation - This one's written but not quite good enough to be posted. What the Hell is the Lagrangian? - I'm not sure I know the answer yet, but I'll tell you when I do.
The Addition of Angular Momentum: Why is it so Weird? Miscellaneous Physics Programs in Basic/Fortran - As it is now, none of these programs are very useful. I've got some better ones coming. A Quick Look at the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect This is summary of what a series of references said. It is not too insightful but basic and readable.

Useful and Elaborate Homework Solutions:
An Incomplete Solutions Guide to Jackson's Text pdf This is quite a popular one. If you use it, please be gracious and tell me if you find typos or blatant mistakes. I'd like to thank those for you who have actually sent in corrections. Quantum Field Theory Homework Solutions
Scalar Theory and R.G.
Q.E.D. and Gauge Theory
Many Body Physics Homework Solutions

Measure 4 Measure - Links to dozens of wonderful conversion sites.
The Integrator - An Invaluable Resource to the Physics Student. This Web Site solves integrals analytically for you.
The "Cubic Formula" - A formula that doesn't come up too often in physics, but it's nice to know.
The Mathematics of Fermat's Last Theorem


More Jackson Electrodynamics Solutions PDF and PS files. Nice.
E&M-Web Quiz - One of my favorites. This is a quiz with little math, just physics. It's pretty scary when there's no differential equations to lean upon, but give it a try. It's fun to see how much you really understand!
