Departmental Resourses

​​​Math for Physics Clinic


Students who have taken t​he below courses are eligible to instruct:

  • Calculus I and II:(MATH 201 and MATH 202 at AUB)
    Sequence and series, cylindrical and spherical coordinates, multiple integrals, Stoke's Theorem, Gauss' Theorem, Surface and Volume Integrals, Differential Equations, Legendre and Laplace Transforms

  • Linear Algebra:(MATH 218 or MATH 219 at AUB)
    Systems of Linear Equations, Gaussian Elimination, Determinants, Vector Spaces, Subspaces, Orthogonal Projections, Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, Vector Spaces, Change of Basis.

  • Partial Differential Equations:(MATH 212 at AUB)
    Partial Differential Equations, Fourier Series and Fourier Inverse, Pointwise and Uniform Convergence of Sequences and Series of Functions.

* The choice of courses has been decided upon by consulting interested candidates, and by relying on the fact that they span most, if not all, topics encountered in undergraduate physics courses.
*Of course, any additional math course taken is a plus.


Students have two options:

  • Students can ask their questions online via a chat dialogue box (this is mostly dedicated to graduates who cannot make it to campus on a regular basis). We will ask the graduates about the days on which they are available to answer students' questions and we will inform the students of these days on the website.
  • Students walk in for in-person Q&A sessions. The timings will be determined based on volunteers' availabilities. A booking system will be available on the website as well.
