Sept 03 I think (hope) we've finally settled on a class time that everyone can make: W 4:00-5:30, and Th 1:30 - 3:00. I hope I can remember it. I've started posting my lecture notes. Right now, we're mostly following along Shankar's first chapter. I'll try to get some of that chapter copied for you until my copy arrives. Aug 27 It looks as if we can have rm 25 Wed and Th afternoons, so let's plan to meet 1:30pm - 3:00pm W and Th, beginning tomorrow. The room isn't ideal (the blackboard's a little small), but there wasn't much available upstairs. I'll continue to keep my eyes open, though. Aug 14 Some comments before the course starts: Enrollment: Thus far I only know of two students taking this course. If you're planning to sign up (or just sit in), please send me your name and email address; I'd like to be able to keep everyone informed about changes in the meeting time and location (see below). Meeting time and location: We won't have class on the first day scheduled (Aug 21) because I have jury duty, but will meet the following Tuesday unless we make other arrangements before then. Given the small number of students, it's pretty likely that we'll settle on a meeting time and place more convenient than the official one. Text: The official text for the course is Sakurai, which is the one the bookstore has available. I've chosen it because I've used it before for 6336, and it covers much (but not all) of the material in that course well. I haven't taught 6335 before, where it's coverage is less ideal, and suspect that I'll be drawing material from several other texts, probably Shankar, a little from Schiff, and perhaps Merzbacher (cf the course References). Whether you choose to buy Sakurai is up to you, though I think both Sakurai and Shankar would be good investments. The library also has these, and many others. You can probably get by without owning any of them, but having access to at least one text to read through for more detailed info is probably a very good idea.
