North American Universities for Summer Transfer

  1. Mar 4, 2013 #1
    I'm trying to find some universities in the US and Canada that offer a good selection of physics courses over the summer. The deadline is fast approaching and I would appreciate any help that you guys could give. The types of courses I'm looking for should be similar to these:

    Electricity and Magnetism:
    Electrostatics, Gauss’ law, electric
    potential, curl and divergence of fields, capacitance, RC circuits, Laplace’s equation, Legendre equation, method of images,
    multipole expansion, dielectrics, polarization, dipole moments, electric displacement.

    Methods of Theoretical Physics:
    First‑order differential equations, linear and separable equations, integrating
    factors, applications. Second‑order linear differential equations. Fundamental solutions, linear independence, Wronskian.
    Nonhomogeneous equations, general solution, method of undetermined coefficients, variation of parameters, applications.
    Power‑series solutions of differential equations, examples. Systems of first‑order linear equations. Review of linear algebra,
    diagonalization of matrices, eigenvalues.

    I know this is a lot to ask, but I only found out this past week that my university scheduled these two courses in the same time-slot in the only semester they're being offered. This pretty much means I'd have to spend two years to get the credit I need. The second course could be replaced by an intro to linear algebra and an intro to diff-eqs.

    EDIT: Beggars can't be choosers, but I would prefer the university to be in a city.
