Einstein’s Relativity and Quantum Revolution

Einstein’s Relativity and Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for Non-Scientists taught by Professor Richard Wolfson consists of twenty-four lectures, demystifying the two key ideas of modern physics - Einstein’s theory of relativity and quantum physics. Relativity and quantum physics are not only profound and beautiful ideas in their own right, but they are also the gateway to understanding many of the latest science stories in the media, including time travel, string theory, black holes and particle accelerators.
