This post is inspired by this math.se post. Let me start by apologizing if there is another thread on phys.se that subsumes this. I often find that I learn best from sets of lecture notes and short ...
The question says everything I want to know, but for more details: I enjoy studying physics but the problem is that I can't find any information with a summary of all physics topics, collected ...
Before this post gets marked as duplicate, I've checked book book recommendations among other posts but I don't think they really answer this fairly niche question. I am looking to compile a list of ...
I realise that there are already a few questions looking for general book recommendations, but the motivation and type of book I'm looking for here is a little different, so I hope you can indulge me. ...
After some discussions with my friend about some "popular" aspects of quantum mechanics, my friend asked me whether there exist any books that could convey the basic ideas in a non-technical way (my ...
I enjoy reading up on new topics in physics and astronomy, and learning the concepts and ideas in the major theories, like relativity and quantum mechanics. Unfortunately, one thing that I lack ...
I took an introductory chemistry course long ago, but the rules seemed arbitrary, and I've forgotten most of what I learned. Now that I have an undergraduate education in physics, I should be able to ...
How and from where does a mathematician learn physics from a mathematical stand point? I am reading the book by Spivak Elementary Mechanics from a mathematicians view point. The first couple of pages ...
