Is the Quantum Mechanics lecture series by Dr. Leonnard Susskind available on dvd?

I don’t know. But I do know where you can find them:
Dr. Leonard Susskind free lectures on YouTube. The lectures are assembled in courses of 8 to 12 lectures of 1½ to 2 hours. Below are the links to the playlists of the full courses (plays next lecture automatically). This gives a total of 57 lectures, summing up to approx 100 hours: (And yes, it’s possible to download videos from YouTube, but I’m not going to tell you how... )

They are also on iTunes U. Very easy to download from there.

EDIT:
Here’s everything you need, including links to both iTunes & YouTube (better then my first links), plus two new courses; Cosmology & Statistical Mechanics: Understanding Modern Physics: Download Leonard Susskind Video LecturesOpen Culture Enjoy!

Thanks for that. However I was hoping they were available on DVD as I am on a wireless connection with a monthly quota of 6GB. I may have to purchase an extra couple of gig prepaid to download the series.

Some of you already know this, but the "Special Relativity" course covers a lot of classical field theory, not just what one typically thinks of as "special relativity".

(This is of course a little 'vague', because the final video size depends on compression and bitrate.) All 8 courses sum up to 126 hrs, giving: 126 x 255 MB ≈ 31 GB ≈ 7 DVD’s That’s gonna be tough on wireless 6 GB quota... On the other hand... who consumes 126 hrs of highly skilled physics lectures in one month...?? Einstein!? Why don’t you download this over a period of 56 months? I guess you will be fully occupied by the lectures during this time... P.S. The YouTubelink to the Cosmology course is not the same as the rest. This will take you the same layout: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_lis...8811AA667C942F @Daverz: Thanks for info.

Wireless <> WiFi ??
Well... if we are talking 3G it’s gonna take 24 hrs x 7 or something like that to download 31 GB... not counting error rate... Seriously, coffee shops and other Hotspots look like a brilliant idea. Or, why not visiting a friend with cable Internet access? With 100 Mbit/s downstream 31 GB can be downloaded in 40 min...

I have watched them through iTune U, very generous of Stanford to put them on the web and for Apple to give them away for free.

New revolutions in particle physics: basic concepts New revolutions in particle physics: standard model Each course has 10 lectures, as usual

You're most welcome
I believe more courses will be uploaded in the near future. Possibly going all the way to string theory.

I've found most of Dr. Leonard Susskind's lectures are on youtube under Stanford's channel. They are absolutely amazing. I'm so happy Stanford and MIT post these lectures. I'd look into Walter Lewin if you liked the way Susskind taught.

I extracted the audio and put them on my iPhone. I've listened to them all many times that way during my commute. I've also listened to all the Feynman Lectures as well as Sidney Coleman's QFT course that way. I love it and am never bored anymore.

This is pretty cool, indeed. Very useful and entertaining. However, I would like to know if it's possible to find coursework, like homework, (with or without solutions) exam papers, lecture notes, etc that accompany these lectures. Anyone know?
