Yale has just made Physics 200 freely available as an internet not-for-credit resource:

http://oyc.yale.edu/physics/fundamentals-of-physics/" [Broken].

Shankar has a reputation at Yale for being a good lecturer. Enjoy.

It's always nice to see the face and hear the voice and experience the personality of the author of your textbook, and here of course I mean Shankar's big red Principles of Quantum Mechanics. Great book. Thanks for the heads up Peter!

It is sad that Shankar doesn't cover QM in this series of lectures. Yale has plans that "Over the next three years, nearly 30 more courses and associated course materials will be added to Open Yale Courses", so we will have to hope for some more good Physics. See the web page http://open.yale.edu/courses/about/index.html".

thanks for posting this! I'm up to lecture 11 and it's really helping me understand the concepts, he is a good lecture and I think I'm going to find and buy his math help book too.

Sir Shankar mailed me that Electrodynamics lectures were unfortunately not taped.

Shankar is the man! I hope they put many more of his classes up in the future. Between him and Walter Lewin, who needs to actually go to class ;)

I accidentally stumbled across his lectures a few weeks ago. I haven't watched many (just the first five) but I can definitely say that he is a great lecturer. I haven't read any of his books though.

He does however have a book on the subject, linked to below.

Here's to hoping that they start putting more advanced courses online.
