Modern, Nuclear, and Particle Physics, Relativity, etc.

NHS Physics is concentrated in Classical Mechanics.  My job is to give you a strong foundation in the fundamentals. We don’t do much formal work with quantum, relativity, string theory, etc. It does come up in discussion sometimes. I find these very interesting and representative of the state of Physics in the 20th and 21st centuries.

  1. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
    now on whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same
    comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
