    Why no comments.

    It is likely people haven't responded because your post is quite ambiguous: "what do you think?"

    Try defining more clearly what your question is here. And it might help if you post all your courses in a given semester instead of just the physics courses.

    Am I taking the right classes for a physics major? Am I taking to little to much, am I lacking in something? Stuff like that.

    isnt this your prescribed coursework verbatim from the school website?

    Some of it is, but the relativity, particle physics, and cosmology are not.

    What is the description for quantum waves?
  10. Nov 23, 2011 #9
    Classical and Quantum Waves
    PHYS-UA 105 Prerequisite: PHYS-UA 95. Physics majors must also register for PHYS-UA 107. Lecture and recitation. Offered in the spring. 3 points.
    Introduction to the physics of classical and quantum waves for students who have had at least one year of college physics and three semesters of calculus or intensive calculus. Topics include linear and nonlinear oscillators, resonance, coupled oscillators, normal modes, mechanical waves, light, matter waves, Fourier analysis, Fourier optics (diffraction), and an introduction to numerical (computer) methods for solving differential equations.
