1. Nobelist Publishes Two Courses
MIT Professor Frank Wilczek has won the 2004 Nobel Prize in Physics for a "colorful" discovery in the world of quarks, the building blocks of the atomic nucleus.
Wilczek's work, which involves the dominant -- or "color," force between quarks -- is key to several major problems in particle physics and beyond. Wilczek, 53, shares the prize of about $1.3 million with David J. Gross of the University of California at Santa Barbara, and H. David Politzer of the California Institute of Technology.
Check out his two courses published on MIT OCW: Course 8.325 -- Relativistic Quantum Field Theory III, which directly reflects on the work that won Wilczek the Nobel Prize, and Course 8.012 -- Physics I, an introductory physics course which presents elementary mechanics, Newton's laws, concepts of momentum, energy, angular momentum, rigid body motion, and non-inertial systems.
