JHU Lectures Fall 2018

Undergraduate lectures, Johns Hopkins University, 2018

Continuing on the themes developed in two prior lecture series at Johns Hopkins, I gave lectures to the same group of students on the mathematics of classical gauge theories. The lectures covered physical aspects of gauge invariance in electrodynamics, as well as the mathematics of bundles and connections. Notes can be found here.

JHU Lectures Spring 2018

Undergraduate lectures, Johns Hopkins University, 2018

Based on the general interest of some students at Johns Hopkins University, I gave lectures introducing quantum mechanics through a pedagogical route based on canonical quantization. Notes can be found here.

Splash 2018

High school lectures, Johns Hopkins University, 2018

Splash is a program in which undergraduate students develop and teach short courses to local high school students. I gave seven lectures on various topics in mathematics and physics.

JHU Lectures Fall 2017

Undergraduate lectures, Johns Hopkins University, 2017

Based on the general interest of some undergraduate students in the JHU Department of Physics & Astronomy, I gave a series of lectures on special relativity, the least action principle, and classical field theory. The main point was to show how the Maxwell equations and the Einstein equations both arise naturally from an action principle.
