lecture Professor of Physics, Leonard Susskind, discusses covariant and
contra variant indices, tensor arithmetic, algebra and calculus, and the
geometry of expanding space time.
This Stanford Continuing Studies course is the fourth of a six-quarter sequence of classes exploring the essential theoretical foundations of modern physics. The topics covered in this course focus on classical mechanics. Leonard Susskind is the Felix Bloch Professor of Physics at Stanford University.
