**THURS 10/02/2014: Lecture Notes 4 are posted**

Dear 8.07 Students,

I just posted a set of lecture notes, Lecture
Notes 4, on the "Traceless Symmetric Tensor Approach to Legendre
Polynomials and Spherical Harmonics". They are based on Lecture
Notes 9 of 2012, but I made a few improvements in the editing.
In particular, the equation that is now Eq. (4.32) has been
corrected.

**SAT 09/20/2014: Lecture Notes 3 posted (addendum to Wed's lecture)**

Dear 8.07 Students,

When I ran out of time in lecture last
Wednesday (9/17/14), there were two topics that I did not have
time to discuss. Since these topics are relevant to Problem Set
2, and are not discussed in Griffiths' textbook, I wrote Lecture
Notes 3 to fill in the gaps. You can access them on the Lecture
Notes tab on the course website.

You will probably find these notes useful in
completing Problem Set 2.

Best wishes,

— Alan Guth —

**WED 09/10/2014: Lecture Notes 1 and 2 are posted**

Dear 8.07 Students,

Hi from Oslo.

I just wanted to let you know that Lecture Notes 1 and 2
have been posted, on the Lecture Notes tab of the course website.
These are notes on "Vector Analysis," and "Rotations in Index
Notation," which you may find useful in doing this week's
homework.

Best wishes,

**THU 09/04/2014: Course Information Sheet is posted**

Dear 8.07 Students,

**WED 09/03/2014: Problem Set 1 is posted**

Dear 8.07 Students,

I just thought that I would let you know that
Problem Set 1 is now posted on the course website. The home page
is at

http://web.mit.edu/8.07/www

from which you can click on "Problem Sets".

As I mentioned in lecture, it will be due on Friday,
September 12, at 5:00 pm. You should turn in the problem sets at
the Physics Department homework boxes, which are at the
intersection of buildings 8 and 16, on the third floor of bldg. 8
and the 4th floor of bldg. 16.

**TUES 09/02/2014: Welcome to 8.07!!!**

Welcome to 8.07, for fall 2014. This web page

resemble the course I taught two years ago, which is archived on
OCW at

http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/physics/8-07-electromagnetism-ii-fall-2012/

Prof. Xiao-Gang Wen will be teaching the recitations this fall,
and Anton Goloborodko will be the teaching assistant. The
lectures will take place from 11:05 am to 11:55 am on Mondays,
Wednesdays, and Fridays in 6-120. The recitations will take
place on Wednesdays at 4:05 pm and on Thursdays at 3:05 and 4:05
