Lec 1 - Topics in String Theory

"Lec 1 - Topics in String Theory" (January 10, 2011) Leonard Susskind gives a lecture on the string theory and particle physics. In this lecture, he begins by describing the theory of reductionism and then goes on to tell why string theory and other modern theories spell the end of reductionism. In the last of course of this series, Leonard Susskind continues his exploration of string theory...

Lec 2 - Topics in String Theory

"Lec 2 - Topics in String Theory" (January 17, 2011) Leonard Susskind describes the special theory of relativity and focuses on showing how it connects to string theory. He considers concepts such as space-time and some of Einstein's original concepts. In the last of course of this series, Leonard Susskind continues his exploration of string theory that attempts to reconcile quantum...

Lec 3 - Topics in String Theory

"Lec 3 - Topics in String Theory" (January 24, 2011) Leonard Susskind uses the most complex math that will be used in the course with the hopes that it will give a better idea of how a black whole works mathematically. In the last of course of this series, Leonard Susskind continues his exploration of string theory that attempts to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity. In...

Lec 4 - Topics in String Theory

"Lec 4 - Topics in String Theory" (January 31, 2011) Leonard Susskind gives a lecture on string theory and particle physics that focuses on the geometry of a black hole near the horizon. He describes how standard concepts from quantum physics can explain the physics that occur at this point. In the last of course of this series, Leonard Susskind continues his exploration of string theory...
