Sharif Notes

Welcome to Sharif Notes! This page is all about helping out my friends at Sharif University of Technology, especially physics undergrad students.

Administrative Processes and Educational Services

Here I try to explain the administrative processes and educational services, which are sometimes very complicated and unusual, in a simple language through the experiences that have existed before. If there have been any changes in any of the described processes and the working method has changed, you can inform me. By the way, some of the essential documents can be found on Sharif’s website.

Laboratory Reports

Note: Using someone else’s lab reports as your own is considered academic misconduct and can result in serious consequences. It is recommended to always complete your own work and properly cite any sources used.

Statistical Mechanics III

During the spring semester of 2021, I had the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant for Prof. Ali Rezakhani’s graduate course in statistical mechanics. I am excited to share the problem sets that I published during that time. They may be useful as a study resource for students interested in the subject. Please keep in mind that the course content and material may have been updated since then.
