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 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.

These are step-by-verifiable-step notes which are designed to help students with a year of calculus based physics who are about to enroll in ordinary differential equations go all the way to doctoral foundations in either mathematics or physics.

These are lecture notes for a course on the theory of Clifford algebras. The various applications include vector space and projective geometry, orthogonal maps and spinors, normed division algebras, as well as simplicial complexes and graph theory.
