PH253: Next Tues class

We went through the quantum thermal radiation derivation very quickly today. On Tuesday, we'll start from the energy quantum hypothesis and derive Planck's result again, in a more methodical manner, and discuss its main features & implications.

For that, read up on black body radiation, e.g., Sect. 2.1.1-2.1.5 in the textbook.

Also, a new homework set will appear tonight some time.
