Nerd alert!

Spent the last half-hour discussing, among other things, adiabatic systems in varying contexts; as applied to quantum physics and computer science as well as thermodynamics. Reviewed the Hamiltonian operator and eigenvalues. The bomb calorimeter was fondly recalled.

Feeling smarter? Or just a wee bit dizzy?


(I was going to post an appropriate Far Side cartoon here, but this gave me pause.)

Alas, if only my students could fondly recall these concepts when they take their exams (on thermodynamics, eigenvalues, etc.).

I was your student, albeit briefly!
