      Quantum gravity is the effort in theoretical physics to create a theory that includes both general relativity and the standard model of particle physics. Currently, these two theories describe different scales of nature and attempt to explore the scale where they overlap yield results that don't quite make sense, like the force of gravity (or curvature of spacetime) becoming infinite. PHYS D. Cognitive Foundations of Physics Education Research. This course is an introduction to research methods and theories in physics education research. Topics include conceptual metaphor and blending, cognitive linguistics, dual-process theory, and historical issues from the intellectual development of physics. 3 Credit Hours.

    In the early s he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. At Mercer he teaches a wide range of physics classes including several specialized classes in observational astronomy, acoustical foundations of music and ancient Chinese science.

ONE OF THE most important distinctions between two types of laws in science is the distinction between what may be called (there is no generally accepted terminology for them) empirical laws and theoretical laws. Epidemiology Foundations takes a social and community perspective and includes information about global diseases and epidemics. Emphasis on concepts such as population health, social determinants, and global health make this book especially interesting and accessible to those new to the subject.

Observational Astrophysics follows the general outline of an astrophysics undergraduate curriculum targeting practical observing information to what will be covered at the university level.

This includes the basics of optics and coordinate systems to the technical details of CCD imaging, photometry, spectography and radio astronomy.3/5(1). Description: With a lively yet rigorous and quantitative approach, this textbook introduces the fundamental topics in optical observational astronomy for undergraduates.

It explains the theoretical foundations for observational practices and reviews essential physics to. Cosmological Physics ISA Truly FIRST Class Text porary Physics, Peacock has done an excellent job of setting out astrophysical cosmology and its underlying physics.

This book is sure to be a hit with both professors and students. Physics concerns direct analysis of the physical world, while philosophy analyzes knowledge about the physical world. This volume combines both disciplines for a philosophical interpretation of quantum physics — an interpretation free from the imprecision of metaphysics, offering a view of the atomic world and its quantum mechanical results as concrete as the visible everyday world.5/5(1).

(Though we should expand the list of topics a bit) It's for questions which are not actually about physics but are still marginally related to physics in some way. I guess you could argue that book recommendation questions are of that type, but the convention is not to apply soft-question to these sorts of questions.
