My material will be in my posted lecture notes, which are based originally
on Jones, Joshi, and Georgi. See the Syllabus and
Lecture Notes for details.
there are many other useful books
which give alternate presentations or treat subjects in more depth.
A list of some of them is here
Instructor: Joel Shapiro
Office: Serin 325
The main texts will be
- H. F. Jones, Groups, Representations and
“Lie Algebras in Particle Physics: from Isospin To Unified Theories
” Second Edition, (Westview Press, 1999)
Homework: There will normally be a homework assignment each week.
Late homeworks will not be accepted without
special permission, generally requested in advance.
Homeworks will be graded and will be the major part (perhaps all) of
your final grade.

Probably you will be allowed
your notes, my notes, and up to two textbooks. Computers may be used
only to access my lecture notes if you don't have paper copies.
This is subject to prior discussion in class.
