Bookish collections of physics and math writing

On this blog (or my old blog) are many article sized bits of writing that were eventually incorporated into “bookish” compilations (a total of about 5500 pages of pdfs):

Some of these courses were undergrad physics courses taken part time in 2010-2013 as a non-degree student at the University of Toronto, and others were taken as part of a part time UofT M.Eng program I started in 2014.

See physicsplay-git for the latex sources of all these notes.

Redacted course notes.

The following course notes have problem set solutions, project related content if applicable, and links to some associated computer algebra notebooks (Matlab, Mathematica, Julia, …) all redacted.  For each of the courses below problem set solutions are replaced by CIA-style blackout marks;)

Feel free to contact me for the complete version (i.e. including my problem set solutions) of any of these notes, provided you are not asking because you are taking or planning to take this course.


On Geometric Algebra

A couple of references that I feel cover this material much better than my notes are:

A lot of my earlier GA notes were exploring papers that I found scattered around the web at the time.  There’s now much more available, including a number of tutorials.  A lot of my later GA notes where notes from reading Geometric Algebra for Physicists, by Chris Doran, and Anthony Lasenby.  That is a book that was too advanced for me at the time I tried to read it, so my attempt to read it required a lot of additional rumination.

Blurbs on atomics, memory ordering and barriers

Just for fun (mostly from my old blog)

These are mostly blog sized articles, but also includes the bookish compilations above.
