I Problem sets between universities

  1. Dec 3, 2017 #1
    Hey all, I'm new here. I was just looking at a problem set from Florida Atlantic University from 2010 (http://www.physics.fau.edu/~cbeetle/Fall10/PHZ5115/Assignments/pset3.pdf) and it looks absolutely ridiculous. I'm taking a course now as a sophomore called "Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences" and we're using Boaz as our textbook. We haven't gone over any of this crazy looking stuff, should I be worried? Thanks.

    Hi Ethan Mullen and welcome to PF.

    No you should not be worried. Physics 5115 at FAU was a graduate course in mathematical physics. You are not at that level yet. The text by Boaz is perfectly appropriate for where you are right now. Give yourself some time to grow intellectually and mathematically.
