31 - 39 of 39 results for: PHYSICS

PHYSICS 293: Literature of Physics

Study of the literature of any special topic. Preparation, presentation of reports. If taken under the supervision of a faculty member outside the department, approval of the Physics chair required. Prerequisites: 25 units of college physics, consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-15 | Repeatable for credit
Instructors: Burchat, P. (PI)

PHYSICS 295: Learning & Teaching of Science (EDUC 280, ENGR 295, MED 270, VPTL 280)

This course will provide students with a basic knowledge of the relevant research in cognitive psychology and science education and the ability to apply that knowledge to enhance their ability to learn and teach science, particularly at the undergraduate level. Course will involve readings, discussion, and application of the ideas through creation of learning activities. It is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students with some science background.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3
Instructors: Wieman, C. (PI)

PHYSICS 332: Quantum Field Theory III

Theory of renormalization. The renormalization group and applications to the theory of phase transitions. Renormalization of Yang-Mills theories. Applications of the renormalization group of quantum chromodynamics. Perturbation theory anomalies. Applications to particle phenomenology. Prerequisite: PHYSICS 331.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3

PHYSICS 364: Gravitational Radiation, Black Holes and Neutron Stars

General relativistic theory of spinning black holes and neutron stars including accretion, jets and tidal capture. Direct and indirect observation of relativistic effects in active galactic nuclei and stellar sources. Linear theory of the generation and propagation of (non-primordial) gravitational radiation. Detection of gravitational waves by Michelson interferometers, pulsars and atom interferometers. Nonlinear emission by binary black holes. Nuclear equation of state and nucleosynthetic implications of neutron star binaries. Pre-requisite: Ph 262 or equivalent.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3

PHYSICS 366: Statistical Methods in Astrophysics

Foundations of principled inference from data, primarily in the Bayesian framework, organized around applications in astrophysics and cosmology. Topics include probabilistic modeling of data, parameter constraints and model comparison, numerical methods including Markov Chain Monte Carlo, and connections to frequentist and machine learning frameworks. Hands-on experience with real data through in-class tutorials, problem sets and a final project. Prerequisite: programming in Python or a similar language at the level of CS 106A. Recommended but not required: probability at the level of STATS 116 or PHYSICS 166/266.
Terms: Spr | Units: 2

PHYSICS 367: Special Topics in Astrophysics: Stellar and High Energy Astrophysics

The first 4-weeks will be on stellar physics including observations, structure and evolution of stars from their birth to the main sequence phase and eventual paths to compact stars (white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes). This part will end with observations of compact stars at optical, X- and gamma-rays, and gravitational waves. The second 4-weeks will be on high energy astrophysical sources in particular the processes governing their energizing, and mechanisms of acceleration of particles and the emission characteristics. Radiation transfer and the roles of turbulence and shocks in all above processes will be also reviewed. Prerequisites: Upper undergraduate or graduate level on Mechanics, Electromagnetism including Special Theory of Relativity.
Terms: Spr | Units: 2

PHYSICS 490: Research

Open only to Physics graduate students, with consent of instructor. Work is in experimental or theoretical problems in research, as distinguished from independent study of a non-research character in 190 and 293.
