FALL 99 Cosmo-Class

The University of Rochester will be videoconferncing a graduate course in particle astrophysics starting Tuesday (September 7,1999). The course will be held on Tuesdays from 11:30 - 2:30 PM (CDT) in the WH12W conference room. Anyone who is interested in attending the class is welcome. No official registration is required (However, it is requested that all students send e-mail to Barbara Warren (barb@pas.rochester.edu) and Adrian Melissinos (meliss@pas.rochester.edu).

The University of Rochester can also offer official audit credit to students from other universities this course; if you are interested you should contact Barbara Warren (barb@pas.rochester.edu, and for official audit, the fee is $72 per credit hour).

The University of Rochester has been offering Particle Physics I and II (P581 and P582 via the video link to FNAL every second year starting in the Fall of even years (Fall 1996,Fall 1998,Fall 2000 etc). In odd years (e.g. F 1999,F 2001 etc) we offer special topics courses. Note that we will be offering P581 (Prof. Thorndike) in Fall 2000, and P582 (Prof.Orr) in Spring 2001.
