Journal Club: Indiana University Dept. of Physics

Organized by Chuck Horowitz

Welcome to an informal physics journal club on Weds. at 12:15.  All are welcome.   The Journal club presents recent results and covers a very wide range of topics.  Feel free to suggest topics, articles, or speakers or to volunteer to help present a talk. Please send comments via email to horowit "at" or phone 812 855-2959 or 812 855-0303. Presentations should be short and simple and not require much preparation.  Please let me know if you would like to be involved and give or help with a presentation! All are welcome!

Please come for the good discussion!

Talks should be self-contained and accessible to a beginning Physics graduate student.
