## Teaching |

I teach and coordinate second and third year core Physics courses, PHYS2041 - Quantum Physics and PHYS3020/7021 - Statistical Mechanics. I also teach half of fourth year course PHYS4030 - Condensed Matter Physics.

Tuesdays: Lecture, 1:00pm-1:50pm; 05-213

Wednesdays: Lecture, 12:00noon-12:50pm; 50-T103

Thursdays: Tutorial, 10:00am-10:50am; 07-204, 07-220, 09-803

Labs: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:00-4:50pm, 7-329

**Consultation hours: ** Tuesdays, 12:00noon-12:50pm, in 6-402

The weekley schedule of lectures, tutorials, suggested readings, and mid-semseter test date(s) can be found here:

**Timetable_PHYS3020_2018.pdf**

**Readings are from the following main texts (either text can be used)**:

1. Daniel V. Schroeder, An introduction to thermal physics [Schroeder].

2. Charles Kittel and Herbert Kroemer, Thermal Physics [Kittel].

Students who would like to do extra-curriculum reading and familiarise themselves with, e.g., the density matrix formulation of quantum statistical ensembles, are encouraged to read the following advanced texts:

1. Kerson Huang, Statistical Mechanics (Wiley, 1963).

2. L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz, Statistical Physics, 3rd edition (Pergamon, 1980).

3. L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz, Quantum mechanics, 3rd edition (Pergamon, 1980).

These extra-curriculum readings are not part of the formal assessment.

Tuesday: Lecture, 11:00am-11:50am; 42-115

Wednesday: Lecture, 2:00pm-2:50pm; 03-309

Friday: Tutorials, 9:00am-9:50am, 10:00am-10:50am, 11:00am-11:50am, 12:00noon-12:50pm, 1:00pm-1:50pm; all in 7-220

Labs: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 2:00pm-4:50pm.
