8 8 Project (review of a physics topic) n Topic –Anything in physics –Should be exciting –Need to be precise –Unique ( 1st come 1st serve ) –Needs my approval before September 23 (5%) –Peut être interdisciplinaire –May be helpful to plan for M.Sc.. n Seminar: –10 min + 2 min Q transparencies or PowerPoint –Seminars to take place in the last 3 weeks of semester –Département invité n Texte de 4 pages format PRL (dû la même journée que le séminaire)

9 9 Physical Review Letters (PRL) n The #1 physics journal in the world n All articles have 4 pages (or less) n Only for the latest, major discoveries n Less than 25% of the manuscripts are accepted for publication n American Physical Society:

10 10 PRL n from a UofO computer n Print a few examples and/or their instructions n You must present a text with EXACTLY that format n Vous pouvez LaTex (REVtex), Word, etc. n 4 pages max n Une copie électronique pour mon site w3 n Français ou anglais, but well-written
