List of Pedagogical articles written by the Theoretical Physics Group
(Only non-IITM affiliations given)

Since all of us spend a lot of time teaching, we do get to interact with a large number of students, undergraduate and postgraduate. Based on our experiences, some of us do write articles which are of a pedagogical nature. This page will provide a partial list of such papers written by members of this group and when possible, a pdf file of the article. If you find any of these articles useful or have any comments, kindly contact the author or me, Suresh Govindarajan by email[suresh at physics.iitm.ac.in].
