View Resource Lecture Notes on Quantum Computation

This is a web site, authored by David Mermin of Cornell University, for a course on quantum computation. It includes lecture notes, soon to be published as a book, assignments, and discussions. Six chapters and seven assignments are available for download. The files are available in both PDF and PS formats.

View Resource Spaceflight and Spacecraft

This is an historical overview of spaceflight, stressing the technology of rockets, satellites and orbits, and its use in unmanned missions. It contains sections on rocket motion, Robert Goddard, history of rocketry and the space race, uses of unmanned spacecraft, and various orbits. Largely narrative, except for detailed derivations of Lagrangian points and gravity-assist maneuvers, it also...

View Resource Newtonian Mechanics

Created by David P. Stern this site consists of algebra-based material at the high-school level, oriented towards astronomy and spaceflight, which explores Newton's Laws and their application. Concepts are stressed such as vectors and applications, mass and inertia, frames of reference, and clarifying centripetal vs. centrifugal forces. This is part of a wider site "From Stargazers to...

View Resource Fractal Geometry

This is a web site, created by Michael Frame, Benoit Mandelbrot, and Nial Neger of Yale University, to support a first course in fractal geometry for students without a strong mathematical background. It covers a wide range of topics in fractals, modern dynamics, and chaos. Each of the topics contains examples of fractals in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. The site also contains lesson...

View Resource Gas Molecules Simulation

Created by Paul Falstad, this applet simulates kinetic theory of gases. The volume, temperature of a plate at the bottom, and force of gravity are adjustable. A histogram displays relative velocities of different temperatures of molecules. A description and source code are also included. Links to additional applets are also included.
