**P4443**: Introductory Quantum Mechanics (Substitute for Bibhushan Shakya). Here are some section notes on the addition of angular momentum, identical particles, and atoms.**P2214**: Oscillations, Waves, and Quantum Mechanics (Substitute for Csaba Csáki). Section notes on solving the Schrodinger equation for a modified square well potential.

**P7661**: Special topics in high energy theory, Fall 2010: flavor physics. I gave a guest lecture introducing effective field theory and operator mixing; lecture notes. See also my notes for the entire course.

Having deferred a PhD position at the Physics department at UC Berkeley, I spent the summer of 2006 grading a physics course as a way to familiarize myself with the group before spending two years in the UK as a Marshall scholar.
