CLASSICAL FIELD THEORY II (PHY 506)
PROF. T. SCHAEFER
Classical Field Theory II was the most boring class
I ever took. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THAT WAY! Come
and see for yourself!
- Boundary Value Problems
Improve your problem solving skills. Learn about Green
functions, tips and tricks, and numerical methods.
- Macroscopic Electrodynamics
Dielectrics, Magnetic Materials, Superconductors.
Waves in Media, Dispersion Relations, Electromagnetic
Plasmas, Plasma Oscillations, ..
Learn how classical field theory describes Superconductors,
electroweak and quark-gluon plasmas, ..
- Classical Scattering
Scattering at long wavelength, Coulomb Scattering, Energy Loss.
Learn how classical field theory explains why the sky is blue,
and how quark jets loose their energy when traversing a quark
Curved space time, Einstein's field equations, weak field limit
(Newton), Gravitational Waves.
Learn how a suitable generalization of electrodynamics describes
how mass and energy warps space.
