Description

Geometric Anatomy of Theoretical Physics (2015, University of Erlangen-Nurnberg). Instructor: Dr. Frederic Schuller.

Theoretical physics aims to provide proper mathematical language for classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, and statistical physics. This course focuses on the development of differential geometry discussing topics on logic, set theory, topology, topological manifolds, differentiable manifolds, bundles, and geometry.
