The View from 1900

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Quantum Mechanics

The View from 1900

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

However, a few odd phenomena remained difficult to explain.

I'm on lecture number 3 so far, and I can't stop listening. I've been listening while I work even.
