Classical Mechanics/Math Methods project

  1. Sep 14, 2006 #1
    I have the option of doing a final project instead of a final exam for my classical mechanics course. The course covers topics from SHM through Fourier Transforms and the Schrodinger Wave Equation. Basically, a ton of different oscillations, vibrations and waves. This is the first semester of my sophmore year, although I have had dif eq and calc 3 already. I am very excited about the project, but I dont want to bite off more than I can chew. I was hoping someone could help point me in the right direction to find a great project. I would really like to explore the interaction of light and matter, particulary the photo-electric effect (PV cells) and resonance. I am looking for good research that has already been done on moving electrons with light, specifically when those electrons are induced into resonance.

    Thanks for any help.
