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" indiana.edu or phone 812 855-2959 or 812 855-0303.

Please come for the good discussion!
Talks should be self-contained and accessible to a beginning Physics graduate student.
