An Introduction to Theoretical Physics (Part 5 of 5)

October 20, 2011


Introduction to Part 5 At this point, let’s reflect upon the topics we have included in our little exploration.  I have tried to place the topics into two groups: Physics  Mathematics Resistor Addition (Series and Parallel) Combinations Ohm’s Law Factorials Kirchoff’s Laws of Electrical Circuits Pascal’s Triangle Electrical Potential Difference Summation Notation You’ll notice that a great… [Read more…]

An Introduction to Theoretical Physics (Part 4 of 5)

Introduction to Part 4 Now we have a solution for the tesseract, we could ask about still higher dimensions.  Rather than a case by case study, we might now aim at a general equation that tells you the resistance of a cube of identical resistors of any dimension.  We have a little experience with this when defining… [Read more…]

An Introduction to Theoretical Physics (Part 3 of 5)

Introduction to Part 3 Having solved the initial problem, calculating the resistance of a cube of identical resistors, what can be done to make the equation more general?  The first abstraction was to move from 2 dimensional circuit diagrams to trying to solve 3 dimensional circuit problems. Could we investigate higher dimensions?  What about a 4 dimensional… [Read more…]

An Introduction to Theoretical Physics (Part 1 of 5)

October 17, 2011


Introduction This is the first of a 5-part series of articles introducing the reader to the work of theoretical physicists.  It is my hope that they will elucidate some of the aspects of thought that this type of investigation requires. How often do you read new reports about the fantastical ideas of particle physicists describing… [Read more…]
