Courses: Contemporary Physics (PHYSB108001)

Spring 2010

Class Number: 1540
IIL NA
New Course: The 20th century brought two revolutions in our
understanding of the universe—the theories of relativity and quantum
physics. We will investigate each of them and their consequences, and
touch on new theories that might unify them. We will also explore
“chaos theory” which applies to phenomena ranging from electrical
activity in the brain during seizures to the stability of solar
systems. Lecture 3 hours; Laboratory 3 hours. This course does not
satisfy the Quantitative Skills requirement. Also see PHYS B158 for
the lecture only course. Enrollment limited to 40 students in the
PHYS B108, 85 students in PHSY B108 and B158 combined.
