Your blog is great! I can relate a lot to this quote on your personal web site: “I also plan to return to my first love, physics, and try to relearn a lot of what I knew about 30 years ago”.
Thanks a lot for making this blog. Especially thanks for the page on the associated Legendre functions. I have taken a look at about a dozen books but I find your explanation much better.
I am doing a PhD in Electrical Engineering in Montreal. Even though I am 33 but I want to switch to Physics (Theoretical Physics) after I am done with this PhD. It is very nice to see that there exist people that understand what it is to be in love with Physics.
mr rowe, or anyone else, do you have any links to griffiths quantum chap 4 problems solved?
I have some solutions for them but haven’t written them up yet….sorry but it could be a while before I get round to them.
hiya i’m so much inspired from you, I can’t tell exactly how much.
I am greatly indebted to you for these valuable pages.
Dear Glen Rowe,
You should feel really good about these Physicspages. I’m a retired mathematician who took reasonable university courses in classical mechanics and electromagnetics about 50 years ago, and am now renewing that interest at a deeper level by working my way through Taylor’s and Griffiths’ books. Your solutions have aided me tremendously. My appreciation for your efforts is without bound
Thanks for the kind words. Which books are you working through? I’m always on the lookout for other texts that would make good topics for the blog.
