Meetings:  Monday and Wednesday: 9:30-10:50, Spiess Hall 330
 Discussion: Friday: 9:30-10:20ish, Spiess Hall 330 (starting October 5)

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 problem set will be an independent project, which you will present in class, either in the last week during class on December 3 or discussion section December 5. We will not meet during the final exam time slot (Wednesday 12 December, 8:00-11:00), but your final write up of your project will be due no later than 11 am on Wednesday 12 December.

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.
