List of Pedagogical articles written by the Theoretical Physics Group
(Only nonIITM 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].
