PHY24 Modern Physics : Classical Mechanics -- Overview 

  

This Stanford Continuing Studies course is the first of a six-quarter sequence of classes exploring the essential theoretical foundations of modern physics. The topics covered in this series of course sequence include classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, the general and special theories of relativity, electromagnetism, cosmology, and black holes. While these courses build upon one another, each course also stands on its own, and both individually and collectively they let students attain the "theoretical minimum" for thinking intelligently about modern physics. The topics covered in this course focus on classical mechanics.

Leonard Susskind, Felix Bloch Professor of Physics

Leonard Susskind received a PhD from Cornell University and has taught at Stanford since 1979. He has won both the Pregel Award from the New York Academy of Science and the J.J. Sakurai Prize in theoretical particle physics. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
