START: Tuesday Aug 19 2008, 12:05 in Howey S204
PLACE AND TIMES: Howey S204, Tu,Th 12:05-1:25
PREREQUISITES: A basic background in calculus, ordinary differential equations, classical and statistical mechanics. Weekly homework assignments require both analytic and numerical work, so familiarity with a programming language is a necessity.
TEACHING METHOD: Two lectures and a homework problem set per week.
EVALUATION METHOD: Weekly homework assignments and a term project individually tailored to student's level and research interests. For inspiration, consult ChaosBook.org/projects. Grades will be determined from the homework (60%) and the term project (40%) which takes the place of a final exam.
PROBLEM SETS: Please deliver solutions to problem sets by Tuesday, at the lecture, or place them in Predrag's mailbox.
