Primary Instructor:

This course is intended to acquaint students with some of the most important conceptual developments in physics in the 20th century, including relativity and quantum mechanics. To fully appreciate the significance of these 20th-century developments requires some historical and conceptual perspective. Therefore, a substantial portion (roughly half) of the course will trace the historical development of ideas in physics leading up to the 20th century.
