Quantum Mechanics Video Courses

In summary, the conversation discusses taking the online courses 8.04x and 8.05x on Quantum Mechanics from MIT on edx, taught by Professor Barton Zwiebach. The courses are highly recommended and the lecturer is praised for being excellent. However, there is a discussion about whether or not it is possible to upload the course videos to the PF media gallery for easier access, with concerns raised about potential copyright issues. Overall, the courses are described as being detailed and time-consuming, but worth the effort for the amount of knowledge gained.

The site asks me to sign into view the contents. Is it possible to upload the videos to the PF media gallery? Then everyone can view them.

I strongly suspect that would raise copyright issues.

That would be illegal. It takes a min to sign up to edx and it is free if you do not need a certificate of completion.

Both courses are excellent. The lecturer is brilliant ! The courses are very detailed and take a lot of time to complete but if you put the time in you will learn a lot.

1. What is quantum mechanics?

Quantum mechanics is a branch of physics that deals with the behavior and interactions of subatomic particles and their fundamental laws.

2. What are quantum mechanics video courses?

Quantum mechanics video courses are online lectures and tutorials that cover the principles and concepts of quantum mechanics, typically using visual aids and demonstrations to explain complex theories.

3. Who can benefit from taking quantum mechanics video courses?

Anyone who is interested in learning about the fundamental laws of the universe and the behavior of particles at a subatomic level can benefit from taking quantum mechanics video courses. It is particularly useful for students and professionals in the fields of physics, chemistry, and engineering.

4. What topics are typically covered in quantum mechanics video courses?

Topics covered in quantum mechanics video courses may include wave-particle duality, quantum states and superposition, the uncertainty principle, quantum entanglement, and quantum computing.

5. Can quantum mechanics be understood through videos alone?

While videos can provide a helpful visual aid in understanding quantum mechanics, it is a complex subject that may require additional resources such as textbooks and practice problems to fully comprehend. It is recommended to supplement video courses with other learning materials.
