This course is for people, who have already studied physics in school and in University, but did not understand, how interesting it is. They have been taught physics, which they can apply to their subjects, but big fundamental laws were left not emphasized enough. Our course will emphasize those turning points in physics. Its material will be sufficient to derive nearly everything, that will not be included in the course.

Урок: Light and Fermat's Least Time Principle

План курса:

  1. Interactions in physics
    This section will make the reader familiar with concepts like force, energy, potential, etc. It will start from interactions of everyday life, and finish with micro world interactions, and the machinery of interactions on small scale.
    1. Gravitation
    2. Electromagnetism
    3. Particles and interactions between them
    4. Nuclear interactions
  2. Classical mechanics
    This section will be all about motion and reasons for it. Also we will have some look at the laws of planetary motion, symmetries in nature and in the end we will show a bit more theoretical way of looking at the mechanics.
    1. Newton laws
    2. Keppler laws
    3. Conservation laws
    4. Principle of least action
  3. 19th Century Physics
    In this section we will give a quick overview on different branches of physics. We will derive some applicable laws from basics, and show how very pure mathematics helps ordinary radio communication.
    1. Electricity
    2. Thermodynamics
    3. Optics
    4. Radiophysics
  4. Modern non-classical physics
    This section will be about the 20th century physics. Here we will tell what happens when speeds are too big or scales are too small. This section will contain some facts about the influence of this new theoretical physics on very applied fields, like engineering and computing.
    1. Special relativity theory
    2. Magnetism as relativistic effect
    3. Quantum principles
    4. Applications of quantum mechanics
