I migrated the content page from this blog to my other site. This is the new address, I cannot configure automatic forwarding here on WP.com.
I am inspired by series of physics textbooks that aim at covering all of physics, written by a single polymath-scientist:
Feynman Physics Lectures.
Landau and Lifshitz, Theoretical Physics.
Lecture Notes by David Tong.
Video lectures by Frederic Schuller.
Books on quantum mechanics and general relativity by Paul Dirac.
Theoretische Physik, by Wilhelm Macke.
I highly enjoyed reading
Manjit Kumar : Quantum: Einstein, Bohr and the Great Debate About the Nature of Reality
That describes how the giants of science tried to decipher what they discovered.
Thanks, Holger! I am also very interested in the history of physics in the first half of the 20st century – I enjoyed the biographies of Einstein, Dirac, Feynman, and Oppenheimer (… and I just realized I forgot to add the latter to this page when synchronizing my general Reading page with this page.)
Is the Dirac book good? I’m fascinated by the man.
I bought the book because of the review written by Peter Coles: https://telescoper.wordpress.com/2013/01/27/the-strangest-man/
His summary is spot-on – the book is very interesting.
