Posted on 03/07/2021: Free “Quantum Physics” course, on Fridays, 6-8PM

by Dr. Roman Senkov (rsenkov@lagcc.cuny.edu)

This is a set of free and friendly online lectures/seminars on topics of Modern Physics. The lectures will be given by Prof. Roman Senkov, scheduled on Fridays, from 6pm to 8pm, via zoom. These lectures can serve as a good transition into a for-credit modern physics course, in particular, Quantum Mechanics for Engineers, that the electrical engineering students have to take at City College. After taking this set of lectures (about 20hrs) the you will learn the basic ideas of Quantum Mechanics, which had revolutionized the way people thought of space, time, matter, and energy. You will also learn about the experiments that led to the development of early quantum mechanics.
