#### For extra challenge

1. Problem about the Casimir effect for EM fields in a narrow cavity. Assigned 9/1, no due date. Solutions (posted 3/3/2023).
2. Problem about angular momentum in presense of a magnetic charge. Assigned 9/24, no due date. Solutions (posted 3/3/2023).
3. In my notes on the fermionic Fock space, verify equations (28), (29), (31), and (34–35) for the relations between the wave-function and Fock-space formalisms for various operators. Assigned 10/11, no due date.
4. Reading assignment from 10/13, no due date:
1. Modern Quantum Mechanics by Sakurai, §3.10, about the time reversal symmetry in quantum mechanics.
2. Peskin and Schroeder textbook, §3.6, about the discrete symmetries of Dirac spinors. Focus on the subsections about the time reversal symmetry and about the combined CPT symmetry.
5. In class on 10/18 I have explained the spin-statistics theorem, but I did not have time to prove two important lemmas. Read my notes on the subject, especially the second half (pages 7–12) where I prove the lemmas. Assigned 10/18, no due date.
