This group is for people who want to study fundamental physics and math topics in depth, with the help of others, and with the extra motivation, and fun, that comes from group study.  We choose a topic to learn about -- such as quantum field theory, relativity, or Hamiltonian mechanics -- then teach ourselves the topic at the graduate/advanced-undergrad level, before moving on.  Courses are self-taught, and last as long as needed: generally one semester.  We make use of on-line videos and lecture notes, as well as textbooks.  We do a bit of homework, but the group is less about learning problem-solving methods than it is about gaining intuition for the basics.  Familiarity with calculus and linear algebra is helpful.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
