Hey there :-)

  1. Jun 10, 2017 #1

    I just stumbled across this forum and thought it would be a nice place to bounce ideas off of people, and learn from all the people on here. I'm no scientist, but I enjoy learning physics (and other sciences) on my spare time in a more amateur way.

    Lately, I've been especially interested in studying special relativity. I've also been reading The Feynman Lectures, which have been a real joy.

    While I am interested in learning more about quantum physics, I find that the math is a little bit beyond me. So I just started reading up on vectors, in the hope that I can go to multivariable calculus and then maybe be able to tackle some more interesting physics stuff.

    On a more personal note, I am originally from NY, but moved to Israel a few years ago after finishing my BA at Cornell in Middle Eastern Studies and Philosophy. Starting my MA next year in Arabic Language and Literature in Jerusalem :-).

    I'm an observant Jew, and a lot of my motivation for studying science, and physics in particular, stems from religious motivations of trying to understand our world and the wonders of creation.

    That's me in a nutshell! Looking forward to some fruitful conversations :-)
