## PHYS 3359 Astrophysics

Upper-division astrophysics, *The University of Texas at El Paso*, 2020

This course is available for free on kudu.com upon request. It consists of twenty-nine 90-minute lectures and corresponding lecture notes. It covers all chapters of “Lectures on Astrophysics” by Steven Weinberg, although some parts are simplified, particularly those involving general relativity. This course was taught in Fall 2020 at The University of Texas of El Paso. Send an email if you are interested in getting access.

## Upper-division thermal physics

Upper-division thermal physics, *The University of Texas at El Paso*, 2021

This course closely follows *Thermal Physics* by Kittel and Kroemer and covers the first 10 chapters. Twenty-seven recorded lectures are available here. Lecture notes and other relevant materials can be found here.

## PHYS 5321 Mechanics

Graduate-level mechanics, *The University of Texas at El Paso*, 2021

This course is available for free on kudu.com upon request. It consists of twenty-seven 90-minute lectures and corresponding lecture notes. It covers the first six chapters of “Classical Mechanics” by Goldstein, Poole, & Safko. This course was taught in Fall 2021 at The University of Texas of El Paso.

## PHYS 2320 Introductory Mechanics (homework problems)

Lower-division calculus-based introductory mechanics for scientists and engineers, *The University of Texas at El Paso*, 2022

Detailed solutions to about 140 homework problems have been recorded and uploaded to YouTube. It includes the main topics in the standard curriculum: kinematics, forces, conservation of energy, conervation of momentum, and all the rotational analogues. Several of my Teaching Assistants have contributed to this effort over several semesters.
