TL;DR Summary: The university pure maths courses feel rough and uninsightful, yet exclude (temporally) the possibility of studying good texts. What and how does one study in order to attain such understanding as to be profound, but allowing, by structure, still to follow the curriculum...
As you know, a lot of SUSY examples, particularly from Witten's "SUSY QM", pivot on the factorisation trick: produce two hamiltonians $$H_0=AA^+, H_1=A^+A$$ and see they have the same eigenvalues except for ceros.
The proof usually goes by: let ##\Psi## be an eigenvector of ##H_0##, consider...

Hi,
I am looking at some lecture notes in Italian, and I'm wondering about the correct English translation for some terms.
I am afraid that in some cases the "literal" translation would sound weird.
I looked online but I still have some doubts. In some cases I was not able to find a satisfactory...
School starts soon, and I know students are looking to get their textbooks at bargain prices 🤑
Inspired by this thread I thought that I could share some of my findings of 100% legally free textbooks and lecture notes in mathematics and mathematical physics (mostly focused on geometry) (some of...
Hi.
There's a great collection of lecture notes on mathematics and physics form Cambridge University that is linked on reddit.

It has notes on almost every topic, beginner, intermediate, and...
I have lately been working with Numerical Analysis and I am using Finite Difference Methods for Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations by Randall J. LeVeque. It was recommended to me by a friend of mine (physicist)

Upon entering my first physics class, I've noticed that taking notes is radically different than in any other class. It seems that during lecture one has two options.
Option 1: Don't take very many notes at all, and instead focus on the lecture.
Option 2: Take good notes, and miss what the...
Hello! I am student studying physics and am trying to find old lecture course notes. I'm not sure where is best place on this site to post such request. Me and 2 friends were using course notes of Leo Radzihovsky course 7240 "Advanced Statistical mechanics" from fall 2017 (Colorado University...
Greetings,
I have come across the effective mass in my solid state physics lectures, and I have troubles understanding it. I have uploaded the part of the script (handwritten 4,5 pages) that I don't understand.
At page 3, it is shown that the effective mass in the vicinity is negative. What...
I am studying quantum field theory from [David Tong's lecture notes][1] and I am stuck at a particular place.
In Page 52., under the heading *3.1.1 Dyson's Formula*, Tong introduces an unitary operator
U(t, t_0) = T \exp(-i\int_{t_0}^{t}H_I(t') dt')
He then introduces the usual definition of...
Hi

I need to give a presentation about roger bacon (the guy who said that rainbows form at a 42 degree angle). It's hard to find information about his study of rainbows so if anyone knows something about it I'll be grateful.
Dear Physics Forum advisers and friends,

Dear Physics Forum friends,
I am a rising college junior in US with a major in mathematics. I recently noticed a problem in my note-taking skill in the mathematics, both from the textbooks and lectures. When I was a microbiology major, I wrote extensive amount of notes from my books and...
Hello science buddies,
This is my first post in this forum. Ok let me get to the point directly, currently I self-study graduate level quantum theory and the main book I'm using is Sakurai's. But I think for self studying it's better to also have a look at lecture notes, first because it's much...
hi
can anyone help me to get complete lecture notes of a many body course which is taught according the book of "many body theory of solids" by John C.Inkson, please?
Mistake 1.
In the lecture slides from my university it says that:
"The response of a stable first-order transfer function to a unit sine wave input is:"
Y(s)=\frac{1}{s+a}*\frac{\omega}{s^2+\omega^2}
Isn't this missing an a in the numerator since the standard form of a first order transfer...
Hello PF. Thanks for reading.
My understanding of Bandwidth in the context in which I learn it (Analogue and Digital Communications) is that it is the spectral width of a signal, BW = f[upper] - f[lower].
However, my lecture notes then define 'fundamental limitations' as,

I was wondering whether Oppenheimer's legendary QM lecture notes still exist and can be found somewhere.
I only found the content of theses lectures at

I assume Bohm's book ``Quantum Theory" from 1951 must contain some of the...
So we're converting these currents from phasor to time domain with ω=4.
I understand I1, but not how the lecturer got I2, is this an error with the notes?
We have these phasors:
Which are converted to this time domain (respectively):
Any help is much appreciated.
You must have worked with some (books, lecture notes or internet materials) which make you master new topics. Could you suggest your choice to all? I want to follow others' track to study. If you got a nice material, you can generously upload and share the links of the lecture notes and...
One day I borrowed a book published by Springer (For learning Mechanics). I find it very difficult to follow. Later, I discover that it is in fact Lecture Notes. I am only a yr 1 physics student, but I want to explore as many area in physics as I can.
My question is, are Lecture Notes such as...
Hi all , How can I find lecture notes on ArXiv ? I was looking for lecture notes on Yang-mills theories treated in the language of differential geometry but didn't succeed till now . Can some one recommend me some good resource for it?

Hello! Is someone aware if there are lecture notes about Lie Groups from a physics course?
I would to study an exposition of this subject made by a physicist.
Thank you in advance!
I was wondering if there is any compelling reason to read the assigned book instead of lecture notes either from the actually professor of the course you are taking or from another another source online as opposed to the book if they seem to cover the same material.

An extremely useful set of lecture notes for anyone who wants to investigate statics of indeterminate structures (i.e. the force and displacement methods). Influence lines are included too.
http://www.ecf.utoronto.ca/apsc/courses/civ214/Lecture%20notes.html"
how do you learn? through reading and summarizing from your textbook or by overlooking again at the lecture notes?
i use the former, and from the lecture notes i see what i should emphasize more on my reading the textbook.
