# 8.02 Physics II

Introduction to electromagnetism and electrostatics: electric charge, Coulomb's law, electric structure of matter; conductors and dielectrics. Concepts of electrostatic field and potential, electrostatic energy. Electric currents, magnetic fields and Ampere's law. Magnetic materials. Time-varying fields and Faraday's law of induction. Basic electric circuits. Electromagnetic waves and Maxwell's equations. Subject taught using the TEAL (Technology Enabled Active Learning) studio format which utilizes small group interaction and current technology to help students develop intuition about, and conceptual models of, physical phenomena.

This class has 18.01, and 8.01 as prerequisites.

8.02 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by N. Gedik, M. Tegmark, P. Dourmashkin and R. Redwine.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-152.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

# 18.06 Linear Algebra

Basic subject on matrix theory and linear algebra, emphasizing topics useful in other disciplines, including systems of equations, vector spaces, determinants, eigenvalues, singular value decomposition, and positive definite matrices. Applications to least-squares approximations, stability of differential equations, networks, Fourier transforms, and Markov processes. Uses linear algebra software. Compared with 18.700, more emphasis on matrix algorithms and many applications.

This class has 18.02 as a prerequisite.

18.06 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by S. G. Johnson and A. Edelman.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 54-100.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
