My Courses

What you'll learn:

  • The conceptual foundations of Quantum Physics.
  • A comprehensive A-Z guide that will save you a ton of time in searching elsewhere trying to piece all the different information together.
  • Quantum Theory without falling into oversimplifications or hyped versions and yet conceived for an audience of non-physicists.
  • The double silt experiment, wave-particle duality, entanglement, superposition, uncertainty principle, Schr√∂dinger's cat, quantum tunneling, and much more.
  • A course that fills the gap between a too popularized version of Quantum Mechanics and high-level university courses.
  • You will learn all the basics, enabling you to distinguish between mere speculative interpretations in fashion and real experimental facts.

Requirements

  • Most of the lectures require no math, with exception of a few parts which resort briefly to some basics of high school math, algebra, and calculus. Otherwise, no prerequisites or math are needed (though students with a technical background may have an advantage.)
  • It is not a university-level physics course. However, it raises the level beyond a standard popular science lecture. This means that you will take your time to go through some material more than once.

Description

This is an overview of the conceptual foundations of physics, from its inception in the 17th century with Galileo Galilei and Newton to the 20th-century physics of Einstein (and somewhat beyond). It is for those who would like to get an overview at a bit higher level of popularized science but less than an academic one, and without having to piece together with long searches all the concepts from different sources. Special emphases are set on the philosophical implications of the 20th-century findings such as determinism and final causes in physics.

Who this course is for:

  • People passionate about science are looking for a serious and rigorous introduction to the basics of modern physics beyond the oversimplified representations of media hypes but without having to attend college.
  • This course is also good preparation for my other Udemy course: "Quantum Physics: An Overview of a Weird World".

What you'll learn:

  • More on the conceptual foundations of Quantum Physics.
  • Quantum Theory without falling into oversimplifications or hyped versions and yet conceived for an audience of non-physicists.
  • Pauli's exclusion principle, Feynman path integrals and diagrams, Aharonov-Bohm effect, quantum Zeno effect, Bell's theorem, the 'which-way, and quantum eraser experiments, interaction-free experiments.

Requirements

  • The Udemy course "Quantum Physics: an overview of a weird world (Basics)".
  • Some lectures resort to beginners level math, in a few cases high school mathematical basics, but no university-level required.
  • In case you need a mathematical refresh an appendix will help you to recall some elementary mathematical concepts (Pythagorean theorem, square root, exponential, sin/cos functions, Cartesian coordinates, vectors, intuitive concept of a derivative, basic notion of a complex number).

Description

This is a supplement and continuation of the Udemy course "Quantum Physics: an overview of a weird world (Basics)". The first part furnished the basics of Quantum Physics, this part dwells deeper into other aspects. Topics addressed are the stability and solidity of matter, the Bell's inequality and Bell theorem, the Aharonov-Bohm effect, Feynman path integrals and Feynman diagrams, and the quantum Zeno effect, the 'which-way, and quantum eraser experiments, interaction-free experiments, and Wheeler's delayed-choice experiment and quantum teleportation (an intro to quantum computing, quantum cryptography and the interpretations of quantum mechanics is coming soon). It may also be interesting for physicists who want to deepen their conceptual foundations that conventional colleges do not deliver.

Who this course is for:

  • Everyone who is passionate about science and/or philosophy of science and is curious about the laws and the nature of the material universe.
  • The course is well suited for all those university students who do not have sufficient mathematical background to go through a high-level QM course but would like to assimilate the basics of quantum physics for the purpose of additional research. For instance philosophers, historians of science, IT students, engineers.

Science and Spirituality in the Light of Sri Aurobindo

Science and Spirituality in the Light of Sri Aurobindo

Course Overview

This course is designed for the scientific- and philosophical-minded who would like to expand their intellectual and intuitive horizon beyond the straitjacket of materialism. A philosophical, scientific, and spiritual overview of the relationship between science and spirituality, mind and the nature of reality, neuroscience and the mystery of consciousness, evolution, and life in the light of Sri Aurobindo. A review and reassessment of the old and new philosophical and metaphysical ideas which attempts to bring closer Western and Eastern traditions where science, philosophy, consciousness, Spirit and Nature are united in a grand vision that transcends the limited conventional scientific and philosophical paradigm.

What you'll learn

  • Some elements of the conceptual foundations of Classical Physics
  • First basic concepts in classical mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, and nonclassical physics, that is, relativity and some quantum physics.

Requirements

  • The Udemy course "Quantum Physics: an overview of a weird world (Basics)".
  • Some lectures resort to beginners level math, in a few cases high school mathematical basics, but no university-level required.
  • In case you need a mathematical refresh an appendix will help you to recall some elementary mathematical concepts (Pythagorean theorem, square root, exponential, sin/cos functions, Cartesian coordinates, vectors, intuitive concept of a derivative, basic notion of a complex number).
