Astronomy 5681 (Spring semester)

For those of you planning to take Astronomy 5681 (Principles of Stellar Evolution & Nucleosynthesis), please note that there has been a change in prerequisites for this course since last year.

Previously, Physics 5600 (Statistical Mechanics) was required, though we usually ignored that.  The webpage for our undergrad major courses was not updated to reflect this change until recently.

The current prerequisites for Astronomy 5681 are Physics 5500, Math 2174 or 2255 or 2145, or permission of instructor.
