This course covers the classical partial differential equations of mathematical physics: the heat equation, the Laplace equation, and the wave equation. The primary technique covered in the course is separation of variables, which leads to solutions in the form of eigenfunction expansions. The topics include Fourier series, separation of variables, SturmLiouville theory, unbounded domains and the Fourier transform, spherical coordinates and Legendres equation, cylindrical coordinates and Bessels equation. The software package Mathematica will be used extensively. Prior knowledge of Mathematica is helpful but not essential. In the last two weeks of the course, there will be a project on an assigned topic. The course will include applications in heat conduction, electrostatics, fluid flow, and acoustics.

Understanding energy transport and conversion at the nanoscale requires a detailed picture of interactions among molecules, electrons, phonons, and photons. This course draws on relevant concepts of statistical thermodynamics and solid state physics to describe the physical mechanisms of energy transport and conversion in nanoscale systems. Topics covered include kinetic theory of gases, thermodynamic distribution functions, energy carrier dispersion relations, Boltzmann transport equation modeling of thermal and electrical properties, size effects (classical and quantum) on material properties, and thermoelectric and photovoltaic energy conversion.

This course focuses teaching the multidisciplinary aspects of designing complex, precise systems. In these systems, aspects from mechanics, optics, electronics, design for manufacturing/assembly, and metrology/qualification must all be considered to design, build, and demonstrate a successful precisionsystem. The goal of this class is to develop a fundamental understanding of multidisciplinary design for designing the next generation of advanced instrumentation.

This course will survey the field of highenergydensity science (HEDS), extending from ultradense matter to the radiationdominated regime. Topics include: experimental and computational methods for the productions, manipulation, and diagnosis of HED matter, thermodynamic equationsofstate; dynamic transitions between equilibrium phases; and radiative and other transport properties. Throughout the course, we will make connections with key HEDS applications in astrophysics, laboratory fusion, and new quantum states of matter
