Next Meetup

Hamiltonian Mechanics and Time-Translation Invariance + Feynman Path Integrals
We will be discussing lecture 8 of The Theoretical Minimum by Leonard Susskind, on Hamiltonian mechanics and time-translation invariance. If time permits we will also have a mini introduction of Feynman Path Integrals and a review of two recent physics related books (Lost in Math & A Fortunate Universe). ** Getting in to Hacklab ** The door to the office building will be locked.

    What we're about

    **Members: please remember to fill out the poll (http://www.meetup.com/Feynman-Lectures-Reading-Group/polls/) to help us decide the best day / time for future events.**

    The Feynman lectures are a series of physics texts based on undergraduate classes taught by Richard Feynman at Caltech. Richard Feynman is the Great Explainer of physics, and these lectures are a classic. Come join us to discuss the content of the books and work through the exercises together.

    The lectures assume only high school level physics and math knowledge, and some familiarity with differential and integral calculus. We might have some events to review calculus for people who are rusty, but those who haven't encountered it before will not be able to fully appreciate the books. The lectures are also read by experts who want to get a fresh perspective on the fundamentals. So anyone within that range who wants to learn about physics in a social context should consider joining.

    You can read the Feynman lectures online for free here (http://www.feynmanlectures.caltech.edu/). You might also want to get your hands on the books Exercises for the Feynman Lectures on Physics and Feynman's Tips on Physics.
