The class is held on Fridays, 11-12, in Cahill 219
Note: approved N95 masks are mandatory!

Instructor/coordinator: George Djorgovski, george-at-astro

The purpose of these seminars is to familiarize the first year Ay graduate students with the research done by our faculty, and thus assist them in choosing their initial research projects. The attendance by the first year students is thus mandatory. Anyone else is welcome to attend, subject to approval by the instructor, within the allowed room attendance capacity. Informal continued discussions after the seminars are encouraged.

Grading: P/F
Requirements: (1) Attendance of all lectures; exceptions may be granted at the instructor's discretion for valid reasons. (2) A 1-2 page written summary of one or two subject(s) you found most interesting. It is also highly recommended that the students attend the weekly Astronomy colloquia.
