Class Notes

Ph 136B is based on Kip Thorne's and Roger Blandford's text book on Applications of Classical Physics. This book should come out in early 2015 at Princeton University Press. Until then, we'll use the most recent version of the electronic notes that Kip and Roger put together. They can be accessed here: http://pmaweb.caltech.edu/Courses/ph136/yr2012/

We might post additional class notes and other materials here.
