Posted in M.I.T.
This lecture provides an indepth examination of the formation of the universe. It is quite extensive in its coverage of the expansion of the cosmos and the illusive dark matter and dark energy.
Posted in M.I.T.
Alan Guth discusses the overall history and structure of the Universe, covering topics from big bang scenarios to the background radiation of the cosmos.
Posted in M.I.T.
In this MIT lecture, Jeffrey McClintock unveils stellar mass black holes. He extensively covers phenomenon such as schwarzschind black holes, the pulsing revolutions of Xray binaries, and the general importance of black holes to physics.
Posted in M.I.T.
In this lecture Edmund Bertschinger tackles Einstein's Field Equations, revealing the history of our understanding of curved spacetime and the mathematical and physical implications of this discovery.
Posted in M.I.T.
This free lecture takes on a frequentlyaskedquestions type approach to introduce concepts as varied as the proliferation of black holes in the cosmos to the whereabouts of the center of the universe.
Posted in M.I.T.
This introductory lecture provides an overview of the course and introduces students to the general principals behind the structure of the universe and spacetime.
