Lecture notes will be periodically posted on this web site before material is covered in class. Black and white paper copies of lecture notes will also be handed out in class. Corrections and additions may also be posted on the web site subsequent to lectures. Material is organized by topic in the rough order intended to be covered in class. Postings will be in pdf format including scans of handwritten notes, and conversions of electronic slides produced in OpenOffice and Microsoft PowerPoint.

Lectures notes given here are superseded by a more recent version of the course taught in the US Particle Accelerator School in June, 2011. If you are interested in the material below, it is likely preferable to download the expanded, improved, and corrected versions at:

Weekly problem sets will be handed out in class and subsequently posted in pdf format on this web site. Solutions will not be posted on the web site but paper copies of solutions will be given in class and solutions will be reviewed. Due dates are listed on the problem sets and they are due at the start of lecture. Students are allowed to discuss weekly problem sets with other students and the lecturers, but are required to turn in their own solutions.

A take home final exam is handed out on the last lecture. Both course lecture notes and the student's own personal notes can be used on the final exam and work must be independent. Students are not allowed to consult others other than clarification questions to the lecturers. The date and location to turn in the exam is listed on the exam.
