Continuation of PHY 411. Development of the wave equation. Electro-magnetic waves in space and in matter. Study of radiation from time varying charge and current distributions.

Fundamentals of quantum mechanics. Schrödinger equation, operator techniques, angular momentum, central force motion, spin, matrix representations, and elementary perturbation theory are studied.

Study of simple radiating systems, scattering and diffraction of electromagnetic waves, radiation by moving charges, special theory of relativity, Lorentz transformation, covariant formulation of Maxwell's equations, relativistic particle dynamics, scattering of charged particles, radiation damping and self-fields of a charged particle.

The Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation of Newtonian mechanics. Also covered are variational principles, transformation theory, Poisson brackets, Hamilton-Jacobi theory, special relativity and the covariant formulation of particle mechanics. General relativity is introduced.

Mathematical methods in physics. Linear algebra, complex variable theory, eigenfunction expansions and orthogonal functions, the special functions of mathematical physics are studied.

Prof. J. P. Hsu has extensive expertise and research experience in broad views of the Lorentz and Poincare invariance, gauge symmetry, quantum field theory, generalization of the Lorentz group to transformations of non- inertial frames and physics in non-inertial frames. In collaboration with Dr. L. Hsu, they developed a broad view of the Lorentz and Poincare invariance and the logically simplest formulation of relativity theory and published 2 books, including "A Broader View of Relativity--General Implications of Lorentz and Poincare Invariance." He has published 167 papers and 12 books. Currently, he investigates the electrodynamics and the mechanics in non- inertial frames and its experimental tests, which are funded research. He has also carried out extensive calculations on gravitational implications of a spin-2 field coupled to fermion field with translation gauge symmetry in flat spacetime, including the gravitational quadrupole radiations of pulsars.
