My Courses

PHYS 1433

PHYS 1433

This is the first of a two-semester sequence of algebra-based physics course that is the foundation to further studies in engineering and technology. The first semester introduces students to concepts and principles of classical mechanics and thermodynamics. Topics include kinematics, Newton’s laws of motion and universal gravitation, work and energy, rotational motion, vibrations, fluids, heat and laws of thermodynamics. Computer-based laboratory component of the course illustrates and supplements the lecture material.

PHYS 1441

PHYS 1441

This is the first of a three-semester sequence of calculus-based physics course that is the foundation to further studies in engineering and technology. The first semester introduces students to concepts and principles of classical mechanics and thermodynamics. Topics include kinematics, Newton’s laws of motion and universal gravitation, work and energy, rotational motion, vibrations, fluids, heat and laws of thermodynamics. Calculus and vector methods are used throughout the course. Computer-based laboratory component of the course illustrates and supplements the lecture material.

Astronomy

Astronomy

Astronomical history is presented including an introduction to the mechanics and optics of Galileo and Newton. Radiation laws and astronomical tools including the telescope are considered. The solar system is presented in detail as is a history of human space travel. Stellar astrophysics is considered including star formation, planetary systems formation; and star properties, groupings and evolution. Galaxy properties and evolution are discussed. Following an introduction to relativity, aspects of quantum mechanics and cosmology are introduced. The search for and consequences of extraterrestrial life are considered. Laboratory experiments supplement and illustrate lecture material.

PHYS4150

PHYS4150

This course provides a basic understanding of computer modeling in physics. Topics include basics of python programming language; scientific plotting; numerical evaluation of integrals; numerical solution of ordinary and partial differential equations; visual programming; basics of high performance and parallel computing; basics of graphics processing unit programming.

Introduction to Research

Introduction to Research

A study of the theoretical and practical application of some basic techniques used in research in the physical sciences. Emphasis is placed on an appreciation for the entire process of scientific practice from proposal through experimentation including poster and oral presentations, to writing a final paper. Includes computer modeling and simulations.
