We explore models of the universe and our place in it. We discuss the foundation of ideas about motion on Earth and in space, as well as the history of modern physics and astronomy, which have changed how we understand space and time. We consider the sources and limitations of human knowledge concerning the origin of the universe, the mystery of the origin of life and evidence that our description of reality is incomplete.

Additional Course Details: 

This one-semester course will provide a foundation in nuclear physics. I plan to cover chapters 1-7, 17, and parts of 16 and 18 in Povh, as well as an overview on nuclear processes in reactors, medicine, weapons, and solar physics. If time allows, we will also touch upon current frontiers of nuclear physics research.

Topics Covered

  • Properties of Nuclei
  • Nuclear Stability and Decay
  • The Strong Nuclear Force
  • Nuclear Reactors, Weapons, and Solar Fusion
  • Scattering Processes
  • Magnetic Moments, and Spin Structure
  • Nuclear Physics in Medicine
