Final exam stuff
- Regular exam date.
Tuesday, 13 December 2011, at 1:30 pm in RBH 213.
- A set of YouTube
video lectures on classical mechanics by Leonard Susskind at Stanford
University. Susskind's project is
to outline the essentials of the subject in just nine lectures (each one
about an hour and a half long.) He
also has lecture series on relativity, quantum theory, etc. Our treatment is very different, but
Susskind is a great physicist and his lectures have lots of fun insights. I watch him for general inspiration.
- I've found it amusing to
browse the topics at PhysicsInsights.org. I haven't vetted everything for
accuracy, but this guy does seem to know a thing or two.
