Physics 615
Fall 2013


We will usually have an ordinary homework each week. It is possible that some will be substituted for by a project, to be done in a group. The procedures are somewhat different:

Homework Policy:
It is required that the homework submitted by each student be his/her own thoughts. Discussion with others about how to do the assignment is acceptable, indeed encouraged. However, the final writing up of the assignment should represent each student's understanding of the problem and should not be copied from another student or from anywhere else.

You are strongly encouraged not to rely on solutions that can be found on the web, at least until you have thoroughly exhausted your own efforts, and those of your colleagues. And then you must reformulate the solution in your own words and ideas.

Project Policy:
Unlike ordinary homework, where although communication is encouraged, each individual is expected to work through all parts him/her-self, in a project it is acceptible for each member to have only read through and understood each part, without actually having worked through each part individually.

The project is to be written up consistently, coherently, and neatly, on a computer, preferably in TeX or LaTeX. Each member is responsible for proofreading before submission.

Note: I don't want my solutions to Peskin and Schroeder to be completely public, as that is unfair to them. So you will need to "log on" with username physics615 and a password I will email to you, to see solutions to problems from the text. Please do not make them openly available.

Homeworks will generally be due on Fridays at 3:00 PM, in my mailbox, though you are encouraged to hand them in in class on Thursday.
