**Ph 229: Advanced
Mathematical Methods of Physics**

**WINTER
QUARTER**

*Textbooks*

S. Morita, *Geometry of
Differential Forms.*

My office is 451 Lauritsen. My office hour is on Tuesday, 1-2 p.m.

TA: C. S. Park. Office hour: Monday, 4-5 p.m.

There will be no exams; instead there will be a homework problem set
each week.
It will be posted on this website each Wednesday and will be due a week
later.
Homework should be given directly to the TA or left in his mailbox (4^{th}
floor of Lauritsen, next to 452 Lauritsen). The TA will produce
solution sets;
you will find them outside of my office. Graded homework will be placed
there
as well. Grading will be done on the basis of the homework. If you need
an
extension, you should ask me in advance; without an extension late
homework
will not be graded.
