Description

This course is comprised of a six-quarter sequence of classes that will explore the essential theoretical foundations of modern physics. The topics covered in this course sequence will include classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, the general and special theories of relativity, electromagnetism, cosmology, and black holes. While these courses will build upon one another, each course also stands on its own, and both individually and collectively they will let students attain the “theoretical minimum” for thinking intelligently about modern physics. Quantum theory governs the universe at its most basic level. In the first half of the 20th century physics was turned on its head by the radical discoveries of Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schroedinger. An entire new logical and mathematical foundation—quantum mechanics—eventually replaced classical physics. We will explore the quantum world, including the particle theory of light, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, and the Schroedinger Equation.

Customer Reviews

Professor is great, but...

The camera guy is annoying, he zooms in and follows the professor back an forth. Zoom out a bit and give him screen room for the people watching this.

Too rambling

Needs to be more concise and shorter

Excellent Resource

I really enjoyed these lectures. Dr. Susskind has a gift for explaining unique and difficult concepts. Also, the videos have excellent quality. I had no trouble reading what was written on thr board.
