The Frontiers of Physics

This course begins by surveying important experiments and observations that created modern physics, which includes the fields of quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of relativity.
The class will investigate the groundbreaking physics theories and the mystifying proofs about how the universe works and a synopsis of physics today. Students will survey historical experiments that led to modern physics theories, as well as the conceptual and philosophical backgrounds. The class will be introduced to current topics in physics research such as string theory, particle physics, astrophysics, biophysics, and nanotechnology.
