Physics 152/202

Electricity, Magnetism and Light

What is the nature of light? In this course, we will study a wide range of texts beginning with the work of Gilbert, Coulomb, and Ampere on electricity and magnetism, and culminating with the electromagnetic theory of light, as developed in the 19th century by Faraday and Maxwell. Weekly laboratory sessions complement the classroom discussions.

If you are not currently enrolled in this course, you are still welcome to sit in on any of my lecture sections. Or you can check out one of my online videos (to be posted shortly). I look forward to our time together this semester studying some of the most significant and insightful works on physics that have been written!

The course syllabus, homework exercise solutions, and other resources will be available behind the following links in the near future.
