Step-by-Step BS to PhD Math/Physics
by Alex Alaniz
Publisher: UC Riverside 2013
Number of pages: 323
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 and more so in physics with much reduced mystery. Abstract algebra, topology (local and global) folds into a useful, intuitive toolset for ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations, be they linear or nonlinear.

Reviews Lie groups, differential geometry, and adapts the usual notion of linear tangent application to the intrinsic point of view proposed for physics. The theory of heat conduction and the theory of linear elastic media are studied in detail.

Topics include Lagrangian Mechanics, Hamiltonian Mechanics, Hamilton-Jacobi Theory, Classical Field Theory formulated in the language of jet bundles, field theories such as sigma models, gauge theory, and Einstein's theory of general relativity.

These are the lecture notes for a one semester course at Leibniz University Hannover. The main aim of the course is to give an introduction to the mathematical methods used in describing discrete quantum systems consisting of infinitely many sites.
