Meetings:  Tuesday and Thursday: 11:00-12:20, Spiess Hall 330
 Discussion: Wednesday: 9:30-10:20, OAR 150

Course Requirements:  Complete weekly problem sets. For most of the problem sets, you may work collaboratively, though the work that you submit must be your own. (Please follow the standards of scientific publication and identify your collaborators.) A midterm and final problem must be completed independently. (They will have about the same scope as the the other problem sets.)

The final exam is scheduled to be held Wednesday 7 December, 11:30-2:30. We will plan to use this time slot for final presentations related to the final assignment.

To gain from this class, students are expected to come to class, participate in class discussions, ask questions. There will be some assigned reading (available in electronic form), and students are expected to complete the reading.
