Intro String Theory Lecture

  1. Sep 3, 2004 #1
    I was bored today and thought to kick off the revival of www.quantumninja.com/toe (opening tomorrow again)
    that I would create this


    It is about 35 minutes of a lecture I wrote with help from some members here including selfAdjoint

    I also have a powerpoint that goes with it
    but this lecture was meant to be stand alone if you would like to kind of follow along with the powerpoint
    the powerpoint is here


    also a transcript of the speech itself is avaliable here


    Any comments on the audio would be would be greatly appreciated.

    I hope this is helpful

    Anyone have a chance to read or listen to the audio yet?

    I read some of it because I didn't have a lot of time to read it all, but it seemed easy to understand and comprehensive. I like it and give it a thumbs-up!

    Its a good presentation. As far as my knowledge of the string theory goes, gives the audience a gist of what the string theory is about.

    thank you both for taking the time to read it
    I was considering writing a few more articles but as I tend to do
    I am streching myself thin right now

    I did not understand one part of your Power Point Presentation. In the train example, what does it mean when you say that the F-Leader is the Leader or Round? I think it is supposed to be Leader OF Round.

    I'll listen to the audio as soon as I get a chance. I'm just a curious teen so I'll be giving you feedback from a layperson's point of view.
