Ok so it seems like a good time to update the lecture section. Here we have a full course on quantum field theory. Ed Witten, when asked about quantum field theory, described it as the hardest theory in modern physics by far. However my friends, don’t be discouraged, there are plenty of great resources online […]

Quantum Mechanics and Cosmology: The Case for Many Worlds

| October 28, 2013 | 0 Comments

Here we have a lecture from the series called “Cosmology & Quantum Foundations”. Simon Saunders, a British philosopher of physics, who is famous for his work on identity and indiscernibility in physics, discusses alternative formulations of quantum mechanics, mostly focusing on the many worlds theory. For more videos from the series check out the links below the video. […]

Quantum Entanglements (Part 1)

| September 6, 2013 | 0 Comments

Here we have another great course from Leonard Susskind. In this course of 9 lectures, Susskind delivers the basics of quantum entanglement in modern theoretical physics. The course starts with topics in classical physics and moves to more complicated topics in quantum mechanics. Finally, the course is concluded by a thorough discussion of quantum entanglement […]

Here’s a course on basic quantum mechanics consisting of 27 lectures. The course is delivered by Professor J.J. Binney, who is an astrophysicist at Oxford university. The lectures cover the basis of quantum mechanics, which, among other subjects, includes: operators and measurements, two slit interference, Dirac notation, harmonic oscillators, tunneling and Einstein-Podolski paradox. For more videos […]

Foundations and Interpretation of Quantum Theory

Foundations and Interpretation of Quantum Theory

| February 11, 2013 | 0 Comments

So this is a course on the foundations of quantum mechanics from the Perimeter Institute. The course consists of an introduction to the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics and the historical problems associated with that interpretation.  In particular, the measurement problem, the EPR paradox and a discussion of contemporary views on these topics will be covered. […]
