MATH 66 Mathematical Topics in Modern Physics
This introductory course presents mathematical topics that are relevant to issues in modern physics. It is mainly designed for two audiences: mathematics majors who would like to see modern physics and the historical motivations for theory in their coursework, and physics majors who want to learn mathematics beyond linear algebra and calculus. Possible topics include (but are not limited to) introductory Hilbert space theory, quantum logics, quantum computing, symplectic geometry, Einstein's theory of special relativity, Lie groups in quantum field theory, etc. No background in physics is assumed. Offered in alternate years.
