PHZ 7427 Journal Club

Trying to find a presentation topic? Have a look at these suggestions, talk to your research advisor or to PH.

Here is a tentative schedule for the PHZ7427 Journal Club Spring 2013. Remember, ideally you will be scanning at least one or two journals related to your research interests, including PRL. See John Wilkins' advice for giving talks here. Please give me or send me & the class a link to the paper on which you intend to give a talk 1 week before you present! Short papers (letters) are much to be preferred for these presentations (15 min is not much longer than a March meeting talk). Talks will be held in 2165 on Wednesdays at 5:00pm as indicated below, and PH will provide refreshments. Files below are in pdf format.
