When I'm preparing new lecture courses I frequently find it very useful to consult notes that other lecturers have put on their web pages for their students. So with absolutely no guarantee and in the hope that they will be useful here are some of mine.
- Equations of motion in electrodynamics. This is my tribute to the late Professor Alessandro De Vita.
- Fields and Waves. First year physics course, taught at King's College 2014-2017. Mostly oscillations, resonance, electrostatics and magnetostatics in vacuum.
- Second year Electromagnetism. I am still teaching this course, but it will have to be much attenuated and revised in these says of SARS-COV-2. So it makes sense to me to put up these notes here in the form that I used them last year. In combination with Fields and Waves they make up an introductory course in Electromagnetism
- Solid State Physics Third year course taught at Queen's University Belfast, 2007-2012.
- Electronic Structure Graduate lectures, mostly density functional theory.
- Elastic and inelastic scattering of electrons.
- Lecture notes on Steel delivered at Imperial College, 2015-2018
- Electrochemistry notes. I wrote these as the attempt of a physicist to get to grips with the mysterious subject of electrochemistry. My intention is that these notes will comprise Part I (equilibrium) and that later I will write Part II (kinetics), but when I try to start on Part II, events intervene...
