Reading assignments are sections from
Purcell *Electricity and Magnetism* (P),
the *Feynman Lectures on Physics Volume 1* (F),
and Welford *Optics* (W).

The third column gives a prominent topic in the lecture.

The next to last column has links to the problems and solutions.

The last column has some links to interesting web pages.
