Dr. Shankar Does It Again!

These lectures are related to his previous podcast: but this time it specializes on electromagentism, Maxwell's equations, wave mechanics,geometrical optics, and quantum mechanics. This podcast is a bit more complex than his lectures on elementary physics, since the math is unfamilar and the ideas are more abstract. But Professor Shankar does an excellent job to keep his students and podcast listeners intrigued by explaining complicated technical material to his class using simple English. I am optimistic that the next lectures that Yale University will improve their audio and video content. There are alternatives to this podcast that other universities offers, Walter Lewin and Leonard Susskind are terffic examples; but Shankar lectures are the best on iTunes and it should stay that way.

Duplicates missing video

This is an absolutely wonderful course, but despite Prof. Shankar's mellifluous voice, the video lectures seem to be audio only, and this is something you must really see. Download the version of this course with over 100 reviews instead please! I had the pleasure of taking this class while he was teaching it, and he really is a master at work. One of the reasons I became a physics teacher myself.


El contenido esta equilibrado y tiene mucha teoría básica que indiscutiblemente es imprescindible dejar pasar por alto. Es decir en el estudio de esta materia este es un instrumento mas de apoyo, el docente esta experimentado y refleja el contenido de cualquier material didáctico.
Recomiendo escuchar todo el contenido.
