Physics 880.05 Pictures

Here we list figures, pictures, graphs, etc. related to the course. Many of these are scanned.

To make the figures from Wong's book, we scan at screen resolution (72 dpi), enlarge them to a width of 7.5 inches or so, and convert them to gifs. This makes small files and the resolution is not bad. However, they look pretty bad when printed. Should we also save higher resolution postscript files?
