Class Notes

I am currently a graduate student at Michigan State University where I am working in lattice field theory. This page contains some of the class notes I took as a graduate student at MSU and as an undergraduate at Florida State University where I majored in physics and applied/computational mathematics. I am still occasionally updating these notes.

I am an advocate for open science. I would love to write free and open textbooks, but until then, feel free to download, print, and use these class notes and my codes on GitHub.

Lattice Field Theory: An Undergraduate Introduction
I wrote the first part of this document when I was trying to understand lattice field theory during my undergraduate research. I finished this document and submitted it as my final project in my undergraduate particle and nuclear physics course.
