Theoretical Minimum Group

This group are planning to watch one or two of the lectures over a couple of weeks, from the title of the series of courses of YouTube lectures, given by Leonard Susskind of Stanford University aimed at a non - academic audience. They are starting with Classical Mechanics. Their aim is to work through some of the examples in the books that go along with the courses and then meet to discuss them with the expert support of Alan McKane, a professor of Mathematical Physics at the University of Manchester.

If anyone is interested in joining the group then now would be a good time to get involved before we get too far down the track.

Professor Leornard Susskind has taught a number of excellent courses on modern physics under the heading "The Theoretical Minimum", meaning just what you need to know to proceed to the next level. They are aimed at people who wanted to study physics, but life got in the way. Now, after a career or two, they want to get back into it, at least at a casual level. The courses, part of a Stanford University's continuing Studies programme for people in the local nonacademic community, are available online. There are also some accompanying books. Would YOU be interested in following some of these courses? Maybe we would limber up with some classical mechanics, then move on to special and general relativity. If interested please contact Peter via the pigeon.

The members of this group, besides myself are:

Mark Gill
Steven jones
Martyn Mann
Alan McKane

We meet every other week on Thursday mornings at my house - next meeting October 8th.
