Physics and Astronomy - Course Details

PHYS570U (PHYS57000)




Quantum Mechanics and/or Operator Algebra, Statistical Mechanics, Classical Mechanics. Knowledge of Quantum Field Theory is not required; however, familiarity with the basics of General Relativity and Riemannian geometry will be assumed.


This course is an introduction to information-theoretic methods in fundamental physics. It is aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in Physics and Mathematics. I strongly encourage interested Mathematics students with knowledge of operator algebras to participate.
