It might not seem like music has much to do with cutting-edge physics at first glance. In his new book, The Jazz of Physics: The Secret Link Between Music and the Structure of the Universe, Brown University physics professor Stephon Alexander argues that using music as an analogy can shed light on some of the deepest mysteries in cosmology.
In this lecture, Professor Leonard Susskind of the Stanford University Physic's Department discusses dark energy, the tendency of it to tear atoms apart, and Gauss's Law. Einstein's Theory (PHY 27) discusses the different applications of Einstein's Theory of Relativity in particle physics, including Newtonian, Galilean, and Guassian laws; p...
Help girls do better in STEM! In a university physics class, Akira Miyake from the University of Colorado used a simple writing exercise to close the gap between male and female performance. In the university’s physics course, men typically do better than women but Miyake’s study shows that this has nothing to do with innate ability. With nothing but his fifteen-minute exercise, performed twice at the beginning of the year, he virtually abolished the gender divide.
