P641 Elementary Particles II
Spring Semester, 2000
Department of Physics, Indiana University


Taught by: Steven Gottlieb
Meets: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1:25 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. in Swain West 103. Well, we don't actually meet for 6 hours per week, but we have the classroom reserved for that time. In practice, we will meet for two 75 minute classes on most weeks. Usually, these classes will be on Monday and Wednesday.

This course is the second semester of a two semester sequence in Elementary Particle physics. You may examine the PostScript syllabus for the course by clicking on the hyperlink.
