Particle Physics for Non-Physicists
A Tour of the Microcosmos
Lectures by Professor Steven Pollock

Particle Physics for Non-Physicists (2003) - 24 lectures, 12 hours
Particle Physics for Non-Physicists at TheGreatCourses.com

This two-part series explains, in easily accessible terms, the discovery of the infinitely small particles-the quarks and neutrinos, muons and bosons-that make up everything in nature, from microbes to stars.

It covers the nature and functions of the individual particles, and their roles in the Standard Model of particle physics (a theory that is as much a masterpiece in science as Shakespeare's works are in literature). The lectures also trace the history of particle physics as a science, and the dedicated scientists and complex technology that have made this branch of physics so profoundly productive and important.

This course provides a framework to understand such cutting-edge physics research as gravity waves, dark matter, and string theory.

Professor Steven Pollock is Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his Master's and Ph.D in physic from Stanford University. He has received the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship and the University of Colorado's Boulder Faculty Assembly Teaching Excellence Award. Professor Pollock is author of the multimedia textbook Physics I.
