Course of Theoretical Physics at the University Leonard Susskind of Stanford free on youtube

Youtube offers many pleasant surprises, including Theoretical Physics courses he has taught Leonard Susskind , a professor at Stanford University. Emulating the great Lev Landau and Evgeny Lifshitz, Leonard gives us the minimum that every physical need to know about theoretical physics. The Stanford Continuing Studies Program are courses for "major" in the sense that they are no courses for learners first race courses or students and graduates are courses for the general public interested in theoretical physics and is not afraid to the technical details. The courses are presented as a playlist (playlist) in sessions of one hour or an hour and a half. Very interesting courses (in my personal opinion) that allow us to enjoy and learn from one of the great theoretical physicists alive.

For those who do not know, Susskind is one of the fathers of string theory: he discovered in 1969 that the formula for Veneziano and Virasoro algebra models were the vibrations of a relativistic string; since then it has been one of the most famous physicists ropes, highlighting his work with Edward Witten in 1998 that linked the holographic principle Gerardus' t Hooft with the entropy of black holes.

TEDxCaltech - Stephen Hawking, John Preskill, Rives, Kip Thorne - Finding Things Out!

Stephen Hawking is a theoretical physicist and cosmologist, Whose scientific books and public appearances Have made him an academic celebrity. I is Known For His Contributions to the fields of cosmology and quantum gravity, Especially in the context of black holes. Also I've Achieved Success with works of popular science in Which I Discusses His Own theories and cosmology in general.

John Preskill Richard P. Feynman is the Professor of Theoretical Physics, and Director of the Institute for Quantum Information at Caltech. His Recent research has focused on quantum computation Primarily and quantum information theory. Preskill is a two-time recipient of the Associated Students of Caltech Teaching Award.

Rives is a poet by trade and a paper engineer by training. He has appeared on multiple seasons of HBO's "Def Poetry Jam" and I was the host of Bravo TV's "Ironic Iconic America, of" which required him to drive around the United States with a supermodel in a network '67 Cadillac El Dorado. I've realizes gets some ridiculously sweet gigs. Rives is the co-host of the annual conference TEDActive and his passions include wordplay, rooftops and designing pop-up books.
