Update: I’m Still Writing The Road to Quantum Mechanics

You haven’t seen much from me for a few weeks, but I’ve been doing a lot behind the scenes.

I don’t have an image for this article, so I’m going to use a random image from the upcoming article on the Generalized Stokes’ Theorem.

It’s been about three weeks since I’ve published my last article for two reasons:

  1. I want to finish writing most of the articles in the Mathematical Objects arc before I publish future articles.
  2. I’ve been tutoring students more frequently since they’ve been having tests and finals.

As you can imagine, the second reason is not going to be as much of a problem soon, so I want to focus on the first reason.

Plans for the Road to Quantum Mechanics

I want to start this update by talking about my plans for the series yet again. This time, I’ll have a much greater focus on the next few articles.

Finishing The Mathematical Objects Arc

Currently the plan for the next few articles in the series will be

  1. The Generalized Stokes’ Theorem
  2. An Intro to Tensors
  3. The Levi-Civita Symbol and Alternating Tensors
  4. Tensors in Physics (maybe)
  5. Maxwell’s Equations and Differential Forms
