Physics 618
Spring 2017


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.

Note: I don't want my solutions to problems in published books to be completely public, as that is unfair to them. So you will need to "log on" with username physics618 and a password I will email to you, to see solutions to problems from the texts. Please do not make them openly available.
