Modern Physics: Statistical Mechanics (Spring 2013)

This series of videos concentrate on classical and quantum statistical mechanics, the meaning of entropy temperature, and the crisis in physics that was called the “ultraviolet catastrophe” — which ultimately led to quantum mechanics. Leonard Susskind will also cover superconductors and models of ferromagnetism, if time permits. To appreciate the material covered in this course, students should understand basic calculus and algebra. Originally presented in the Stanford Continuing Studies Program.
