Welcome to PHYS 496! Our first class will meet on Friday, August 25, promptly at 2:00 p.m. in Room 158 Loomis Laboratory of Physics. The class is available only to students who are registered for PHYS 496.

Each Wednesday (Thursday if she forgets), Celia will send an email message to your UIUC official email account, previewing that week's class activities. Please be on the lookout for that email, as it will often contain information that you should know or review before class.
