Downloads for Homework Problems
- Here's the "n_of_air.txt" file that you need for one HW problem: n_of_air.txt
- Here's the Mathematica code to generate zeroes of the Bessel derivative functions (open, then copy and paste into your own notebook): besselprimezeroes.nb
- Here's the graph paper you need for the "graphical Lorentz transformation" HW problem: graphical_velocity_transformation.pdf
- The syllabus and tentative schedule is available on Max. If you'd like a hardcopy you'll have to print that out yourself..
