Physics - transfer credit for this course awarded for a one-semester, conceptual physics course. Physics and - transfer credit awarded for these courses if they cover the same content as and , respectively, but assume a full year of calculus as a pre-requisite rather than a co-requisite. Special note to Engineers: Students taking an algebra-trigonometry based physics course will be awarded transfer credit for Physics or These courses are not acceptable for credit in the College of Engineering at Vanderbilt. If you need physics courses for your major requirements at Vanderbilt, you should check with your major department to learn whether these courses will be acceptable.
You are also advised to take both semesters of such a course sequence elsewhere, since neither is taught at Vanderbilt and since neither is adequate preparation for taking a second-semester calculus-based course at Vanderbilt. Students are strongly urged to take the lecture and laboratory components at the same time, as they likely will learn better in both courses that way; however, a student may choose to take only the lecture or only the laboratory course s in the summer and pick up the other course at Vanderbilt.

Due to a high volume of such questions, they are consolidated in weekly Physics Questions threads. Questions regarding job opportunities and working as a physicist have a dedicated weekly Careers and Education thread and should be posted there.
Inquiries about studying physics should be posted in our weekly Careers and Education thread. Image-only posts should be on-topic and should promote discussion. Memes, rage comics, image macros, reaction gifs, or otherwise "zero-content" submissions are not allowed. Feel free to provide links to additional sources in the comment section instead. First, you will need to install one of the recommended add-ons.
If you're in need of something to supplement your understanding, please feel welcome to ask in the comments. Similarly, if you know of some amazing resource you would like to share, you're welcome to post it in the comments. Anyone have a good reference for the renormalization group RG?
In the context of condensed matter specifically. It's neither about condensed matter nor the RG specifically , but imo it's still worth reading. There are tons of standard references at various levels of detail ha! I like Kardar's statistical physics of fields.
Anyone have any recommendations for an intro to calculus based physics book? Am going to be a college freshman next year, and wanted to get acquainted with some of the material over the summer. Also, I hope this isn't too off topic, but how about recommendations for a Calculus II book? I've learned a bit of it already, but Taylor Series and Trig substitutions trip me up sometimes. For calculus you can't really go wrong with Stewart.

Huggins is a great read-it-yourself book. Try both physics and calculus one is a Calc based physics book, the other a physics based Calc book. They are a nice bridge between college level and high school level texts. I'm starting a research project in conformal field theory very soon. What is a good resource to learn this from the ground up assuming QFT knowledge presented by Peskin and Schroeder?
The two standard references are Ginsparg and the big yellow book.
They both primarily focus on 2D CFTs, which are also introduced in any string theory textbook see Tong's online lecture notes for example. Unfortunately the second half of the big yellow book is basically only useful as a reference, but I like the first half.
Anyone can throw a bone for someone in need of learning EM wave propagation through different mediums? I am currently reading Optics by Eugene Hecht and Introduction to Electrodynamics by Griffiths but I feel I am missing the points I need to understand my specific set of problems. I used both Griffiths and Jackson in my grad EM courses. Jackson's "Blue Book" is highly regarded and, from what I can tell from comments in this sub, also highly reviled. Its a bit technical mathematically, but, well, thats kinda what you need to really understand EM propogation, tbh.
Ill be honest, its been a while. Griffiths isnt bad either. But maybe Im too old and out of the loop. Id be curious what others recommend. Hi, I'm building a vehicle for physics, and I need some help I wasn't at class when groups were made because I broke my ankle so I'm alone. I'm stumped on what to do. The goal is either to finish 3 meters the fastest, or go the longest distance. The limitations are that the car must be under 50 cm in length, and not have electrical components.
My ideas so far are a car powered by springs, air from a balloons, a combustible gas in a balloon pushing the balloon with the force, or pressurized gas. The car is "powered" through the gravitational potential energy of a falling object in this case, a brick.
The car has a suspended brick, and when the brick falls, it tugs on a string that is wrapped around one of the axles of the car itself, propelling it forward. Yavorsky and A. Detlaf from 3rd ed.

It is brilliant. It covers all of 's physics. It is more than pages and defines all concepts of the physics at the time. Every concept! I've been searching a while for something more modern, but I cannot find anything as comprehensive. I would really love a big "tome" that covers all of physics, with modern understanding. I have time to read one book this summer, I am split between 'Nakahara geometry topology and physics' or 'Howard Georgi lie algebras in particle physics' any opinions on either?
