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.
