Physics 596. This required course is designed for the purpose of teaching you how to write scientific papers and give scientific talks. Following some basic introductory lectures on the elements of scientific writing, grammar, and style, you will be asked to write two papers – both about 4-6 pages in length. In both papers, you should reference all sources and avoid copying them. Outlines will be required with the first paper, which will normally be written on a topic from one of your more advanced physics or astronomy courses. Another possibility is to write about some specific research you have done, but in this case you must be careful to avoid using the jargon of your research group. The specific topic must be accepted by the instructor; elementary topics such as Newton’s Laws or the H-R diagram will not normally be allowed. The second paper will be written on a topic chosen from a selection of somewhat more general scientific subjects
