**Announcements****Dec. 14:**Grades are posted on WebCT Vista. You can see the class medians here. The "Class Work" figure combines class participation points, the three homework grades, and one point for each time you signed the attendance sheet. The purpose of this course was to broaden your horizons, not to inculcate testable skills. I hope you enjoyed it and benefited from it.**Dec. 4:**The final exam will be**open book**. Remember to bring Schutz's green book and any other notes, books, and written material that you desire. Please, no more than one TAMU library book (for fairness) and no live electronics. There will not be an explicitly "take-home" component, but some very broad hints may be dropped in our last class session (Tuesday, 12/6).**Dec. 4:**Tomorrow (the-Monday-that-is-a-Friday) my office hour will start at 2:30 (not 10:45). I expect to be in my office at the usual time of 2:00-3:00 on Wednesday and Thursday.**Nov. 21:**Happy Thanksgiving! I will be out of town for a long holiday weekend, starting tomorrow afternoon, so I can't hold office hours on Wednesday. Nov. 23, or Monday, Nov. 28. Please read the key for Test B, which is now available below.-
**Nov. 9:**Next Math Club meeting (Monday, Nov. 14) **Nov. 4:**Since this is the Einstein centennial year, various journals are publishing special issues entirely devoted to relativity and containing review or pedagogical articles. I added a list of three of these below (after the book list).**Oct. 10:**Office hour this Thursday, Oct. 13, is cancelled. (I will be away from Thursday afternoon through Sunday.) The Monday office hour (Oct. 17) is rescheduled for 2:00 instead of 10:45.**Oct. 5:**Differential geometry seminar in the physics department (Wednesdays at 4:00)**Oct.4:**Some of you may be interested in the lecture by Richard Stanley, "An Introduction to Young Tableaux", on Monday, Oct. 10, at 4:00 in Milner 317. This should be an expository lecture aimed at first-year graduate students. For an idea of why Young tableaus are important for working with tensors, see this.**Oct. 4:**Math Career Fair (Oct. 11)**Sept. 23:**I will be unable to meet the Monday morning office hour, Sept. 26. I will be here in the afternoon (2-3 at least).**Sept. 18:**Final class roster (with new student numbers) is now available below. New numbers are in effect on Thursday, Sept. 22.-
**Sept. 16:**"Permanent" office hours: M 10:45-11:45, W 2:00-3:00, R 2:00-2:50

I will usually be in the office at the "analogous" times (F 10:45, MF 2, T 2), but with no guarantee. (At W 10:45 I have a standing appointment with a graduate student.)

**Test solutions**

- Course handout
- Please see my home page for up-to-date office hours.
- Homework and class-discussion problems (under construction)
- TeX file for the electromagnetism assignment (corrected 10/23). (Here is the TeX file again with a different name (helpful if your browser is set up with TeXExplorer, for example).) I apologize that occasionally you will need to purge some of my private macros. (For example, replacing "\zT" by "\hbox" should usually work.) LaTeX users will need to do more work.
- Roster
- More books
- Special issues of journals entirely devoted to relativity
- Instructions for using WebCT Vista to check your homework and test grades.
- Information on how to get a minor in mathematics, or even a double major. Most science and engineering majors can qualify easily.
