During the Spring 2005 quarter, the Astrophysical Institute and the Institute for Nuclear and Particle Physics are holding a joint seminar series, meeting on Tuesdays at 4:10 pm.
Astrophysics graduate students are expected to attend the seminar and enroll
in PHYS 879F for 1 credit hour.
Undergraduate students who want to take the seminar for credit should enroll in PHYS 493 for 1 credit hour.
The Astrophysical Institute is also sponsoring an informal Journal Club this quarter, which meets on Wednesdays at 4:10 pm in the Edwards Accelerator Lab Conference Room (unless otherwise indicated). Volunteers will lead a discussion of papers from the current astronomy literature.
