Lec 1 - Special Relativity

"Lec 1 - Special Relativity" (April 9, 2012) In the first lecture of the series Leonard Susskind discusses the concepts that will be covered throughout the course. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical laws of relativity to all laws of physics, even electrodynamics. In this course,...

Lec 2 - Special Relativity

"Lec 2 - Special Relativity" (April 16, 2012) Leonard Susskind starts with a brief review of what was discussed in the first lecture -- specifically the use of vectors and spin in three dimensional space and in relation to special relativity. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical laws...

Lec 3 - Special Relativity

"Lec 3 - Special Relativity" (April 23, 2012) Leonard Susskind begins to discuss particle mechanics and the role that they play in the special theory of relativity. This includes how particles move, the idea of momentum, and some topics on energy. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical...

Lec 4 - Special Relativity

"Lec 4 - Special Relativity" (April 30, 2012) Leonard Susskind moves into the topic of fields and field theory. For the most part he will focus on classical field theory, but occasionally will relate it to some of the concepts from quantum mechanics. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended...

Lec 5 - Special Relativity

"Lec 5 - Special Relativity" (May 7, 2012) Leonard Susskind answers a question regarding material covered in the previous lecture. Following his explanation he continues into the concepts of fields and particles as they exist in special relativity. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical...

Lec 6 - Special Relativity

"Lec 6 - Special Relativity" (May 14, 2012) Leonard Susskind dives into topics of electromagnetism and how it relates to quantum mechanics. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical laws of relativity to all laws of physics, even electrodynamics. In this course, Professor Susskind takes a...

Lec 7 - Special Relativity

"Lec 7 - Special Relativity" (May 21, 2012) Leonard Susskind reviews some of the heavy mathematics from the previous lecture and discusses how at times complicated mathematics is the only way to explain high level physics, briefly sharing his thoughts on how and where math and nature collide. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of...

Lec 8 - Special Relativity

"Lec 8 - Special Relativity" (June 5, 2012) Leonard Susskind covers more topics in electromagnetism and relativity, including dynamics of the electric and magnetic field and the related effect of charges on the electromagnetic field. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical laws of...

Lec 9 - Special Relativity

"Lec 9 - Special Relativity" (June 11, 2012) Leonard Susskind discusses plane electromagnetic waves in regards to Maxwell's equations. He then looks for a Lagrangian formulation of Maxwell's equations in order to support the laws of conservation. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical...

Lec Last - Special Relativity

"Lec Last - Special Relativity" (June 18, 2012) Professor Susskind clarifies how some of his notation differs from the standard convention and then moves back into the concepts of momentum and conserved energy as it relates to special relativity. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical...
