S5456: Introduction to Quantum Mechanics in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)'s_cat. We'll talk a bit about a wave function, which is the basis of much of quantum mechanics. We'll explore what a wave function is, what an orbital is, what the basis for Schrodinger's cat is, and various approximations we make when we do quantum mechanics. We will also talk a little bit about the ways computational chemistry have affected the field.

M4801: Introduction to Logic in HSSP Summer 2011 (Jul. 10, 2011)
Logic is the formal study of reasoning and arguments, or what makes something true or false given its context. In this class, we will explore the basics of formal logic, and its applications to philosophy and computer science (like Meta Theory and the Turing Machine). Logic is a powerful subject to know: studying it will help you with computer code, expository writing, and general problem solving! Also, there will be food :-)
