Physics 419 is not formally a prerequisite for this course, however, the background acquired in 419 is very helpful. Physics 400 is not a prerequisite for other physics courses except for 401, but should be taken early in the 4xx course sequence. An ideal sequence for the core courses is 419, 400, and 410; but 419 and 400 may be taken simultaneously.
