Other Mailing Lists Provided by Physics

Many mailing lists exist on the Physics list server, which you can find at the web site http://lists.physics.umn.edu/

Log in to the site with the username username@physics.umn.edu (replace username with your own physics username) and your physics password.

The lists are subdivided into categories:

  • Astronomy - lists set up for the Astronomy Department
  • Physics (Departmental) - lists for Physics departmental use (eg , “faculty”, “grads”, etc).
  • Physics (Classes) - lists related to classes
  • Physics (Projects) - lists related to research projects, workshops, or other individual projects.

Clicking “List of lists” towards the top of the page gives, amazingly, a list of all the available mailing lists.
