Three Lectures on Complexity and Black Holes
by Leonard Susskind
Publisher: arXiv.org 2018
Number of pages: 84
The first lecture describes the meaning of quantum complexity, the analogy between entropy and complexity, and the second law of complexity. Lecture two reviews the connection between the second law of complexity and the interior of black holes. The final lecture is about the thermodynamics of complexity, and 'uncomplexity' as a resource for doing computational work.

The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. The author describes them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and the exceptional Lie groups.

The subject of these lecture notes is spectral theory of self-adjoint operators and some of its applications to mathematical physics. The main theme is the interplay between spectral theory of self-adjoint operators and classical harmonic analysis.

With a degree of exaggeration, modern physics is the physics of harmonic oscillators and two-by-two matrices. Indeed, they constitute the basic language for the symmetry problems in physics, and thus the main theme of this journal.

The author summarizes most of the more advanced mathematical trickery seen in electrodynamics and quantum mechanics in simple and friendly terms with examples. Mathematical tools such as tensors or differential forms are covered in this text.
