PHYS 201: Waves and Optics

I havefinished teaching this class for now, but I'm leaving the problem set and lecture notes here in case anyone finds them useful.

I'm teaching freshman E&M now, which also has some online stuff if you are interested: PHYS 102


Instructor: Jason H. Hafner [blog], Brockman Hall 262, x3205, hafner@rice.edu

Meets: MWF 9:00 - 9:50 am, HZ 210
