Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for NonScientists, 2nd Edition
 By: Richard Wolfson, The Great Courses
 Narrated by: Richard Wolfson
 Length: 12 hrs and 20 mins
 Original Recording

Overall

Performance

Story
"It doesn't take an Einstein to understand modern physics," says Professor Wolfson at the outset of these 24 lectures on what may be the most important subjects in the universe: relativity and quantum physics. Both have reputations for complexity. But the basic ideas behind them are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. These dynamic and illuminating lectures begin with a brief overview of theories of physical reality starting with Aristotle and culminating in Newtonian or "classical" physics. After that, you'll follow along as Professor Wolfson outlines the logic that led to Einstein's profound theory of special relativity and the simple yet farreaching insight on which it rests. With that insight in mind, you'll move on to consider Einstein's theory of general relativity and its interpretation of gravitation in terms of the curvature of space and time.From there, you'll embark on a dazzling exploration of how inquiry into matter at the atomic and subatomic scales led to quandaries that are resolvedor at least clarifiedby quantum mechanics, a vision of physical reality so profound and so at odds with our experience that it nearly defies language.By bringing relativity and quantum mechanics into the same picture, you'll chart the development of fascinating hypotheses about the origin, development, and possible futures of the entire universe, as well as the possibility that physics can produce a "theory of everything" to account for all aspects of the physical world. But the goal throughout these lectures remains the same: to present the key ideas of modern physics in a way that makes them clear to the interested layperson.

Performance

Story
Max Tegmark leads us on an astonishing journey through past, present and future, and through the physics, astronomy, and mathematics that are the foundation of his work, most particularly his hypothesis that our physical reality is a mathematical structure and his theory of the ultimate multiverse. In a dazzling combination of both popular and groundbreaking science, he not only helps us grasp his often mindboggling theories, but he also shares with us some of the often surprising triumphs and disappointments that have shaped his life as a scientist.

Story
With his characteristic eyebrowraising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prizewinning physicist are no laughing matter. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.

Story
From Schrodinger's cat to Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, this book untangles the weirdness of the quantum world. Quantum mechanics underpins modern science and provides us with a blueprint for reality itself. And yet it has been said that if you're not shocked by it, you don't understand it. But is quantum physics really so unknowable? Is reality really so strange? And just how can cats be half alive and half dead at the same time?

You need the book to follow these lectures
The only way to follow these lectures is if you have the books
(ISBN 0201510030, 0201510049,02015010057) so you can follow the formulas and the diagrams.
However, the audio are all in just put together without a seeming order and you will have to buy all the audio volumes to follow the lectures in the order given in the books.
Vol 2 (audio) contains the following lectures.
Symmetry in Physical Laws (Vol. 1 Chapter 52 in the book)
Identical Particles (Vol 3 Chapter 4)
The Hyperfine Splitting in Hydrogen (Vol 3 Chapter 12)
Symmetry and Conservation Laws (Vol 3 Chapter 17)
The Hydrogen Atom and the Periodic Table (Vol. 3 Chapter 19)
The Schroedinger Equation in a Classical Context: A Seminar in Superconductivity (Vol 3 Chapter 21)

Beware left handed aliens!
More delightful explanations of the weirdo quantum stuff from the master! If you haven't the hardcopy of the relevant lectures, or prior exposure to the math, then some of the board scribbling will sound rather foggy. If so, don't despair, close attention will still repay. Indistinguishable alternatives combine amplitudes. If Bose particles they add. If Fermi particles they subtract. So photons tend to aggregate  hence say, induced emission and lasers. Electrons tend to exclude  hence say, stability and chemical properties of matter. Remember that the wave/particle models are only useful guides to behaviour, depending on circumstance. The accuracy of quantum mechanics ( with respect to prediction of experiment ) comes using the math machinery as defined, and there's the rub. It's hard because it's not ( macroscopically/everyday ) intuitive, and at the end of the calculations one then has to obtain a physical interpretation. However Mr Feynman is a very helpful guide... and recall he said that nobody understands quantum mechanics!

Not as good as Vol. 1
It's true: large parts of this volume are impossible to follow. I've had a course in quantum mechanics and so I can understand parts of this volume. But the discussion on hyperfine splitting in the hydrogen atom is completely opaque without the boardwork.
You can still get the broad ideas, though, and Feynman's presentation is as charming as ever. So as a cultural/historical piece, it's fine. But don't expect to come away with a detailed understanding of the mechanics.

Difficult to follow
Without seeing what is being written on the board, these lectures are very difficult to understand, unless maybe you have already completed a similar course in a classroom setting. Many times things are written on the board with very little desciption of what is being written.

Feynman Lectures
Hard to follow due to the fact that the lectures are in front of a blackboard and Mr. Feynman uses the blackboard to explain many of his key points. Would be a very good if it were video and the listener could see the blackboard. Without the visual, much of the audio is hard to follow.

Goes well with Feynman Lectures on Physics books
If you could sum up The Feynman Lectures on Physics: Volume 2, Advanced Quantum Mechanics in three words, what would they be?
Listening to this with the book in hand is delightful and almost haunting. You feel like you are sitting in the lecture hall with Dick Fineman right there speaking to you. So glad I got the books to accompany these audio files

this is amust for physists
Would you consider the audio edition of The Feynman Lectures on Physics to be better than the print version?
The books and audios really go together ,the sound quality at times in this series is bad but it is 50years old and the audios don't match up with the chapters in the books if only the would clean up the sound and put the lectures in the orders with the riverside books as they were meant to be,that wold be heaven for serious students. But in spite of those flaws it's still beautifull
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Feynman Lectures on Physics?
To me the study of atom and molecules,plus his discussion of quantum he should have been proud of thatp
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Quantum and relativity always has an extreme reaction ,laugh?cry?no, amazed that such things are even possible would be more like it
