Applied Mathematics 206, "Tensor Analysis and Applications," will be one of two new course in its field. Carl E. Pearson, assistant professor of Applied Mechanics, will give Applied Physics 285, "Advanced Thermodynamies," and Bruce Chalmers, Gordon McKay Professor of Metallurgy, will teach Engineering Sciences 190, "Engineering Materials."
Most of the eight courses in Anthropology which are listed for this fall are reorganizations of subjects being presented this year. Clyde K. M. Kluckhohn, professor of Anthropology, who is in California this year, will be back to give his course on "History and Theory of Anthropology," Anthropology 250.
