Developing requirements for time resolved observing capabilities with
the Thirty Meter Telescope
Warren Skidmore

A working group has been established to develop the requirements for
time resolved and polarimetric observing capabilities for the Thirty Meter
Telescope. I will describe the presently planned observing capabilities, their
limitations in respect to the above capabilities, then discuss the science
programs that are being collected, the process being followed to prioritize
the science and generate the specific requirements.
