Feel free -at any time- to suggest topics that you would like to see covered in the course.
This is whiteboard strictly course, no projectors and slides. What follows are mostly clipps of lecture notes, many of which will be worked out in live time during the course. And no, revolution will not be televised, but when you see YouTube icon, click on it to get a talking head
during the course, this homepage is updated hourly
Lecture 1-2 : try doing this without birdtracks!
Lecture 3-4 : trace and multiplet bases
Lecture 5-6 : multi-quark states
Lecture 7-8 : Lie groups and Lie algebras
Lecture 9-10 : Wigner 3- and 6-j coefficients
you got a new idea?
Bonus beach lecture : forget Feynman graphs
a "few" Saint-Jacut photos
It takes class
Hard work builds character
Optional fun reading : Penrose and no need to learn all these "Greek" words
