Physics Resources
Below is a collection of resources being websites, online texts, or even forums that I have found helpful over the years, and continue to do so. Some are even just topics that I enjoy! Others are my own personal handwritten notes and derivations to problems.

Personal Textbook Solutions

These are solutions for textbooks I have read and studied either for research interest, or pure interest. These are still work in progress solutions as of (9/26/2021)
General Relativity

Thomas Moore as a great textbook for an introduction into GR and brilliant worksheets found here.

John Baez (a mathematician I think everyone should follow) can help you find the right GR text for you! He gave a writeup of which one is right for you.

David Tong at Cambridge has some more advance lectures notes, but they are clear and well written.

GR can have difficult calculations, thankfully there are machines called computers. Matthew Headrick has a nice mathematica package for just this.
Python, The Shell, and Mathematica Tips/Help

This is (another) introduction into Python.

This is personally my goto for solving physics in python (ODEs, PDEs, chaos, and Feynman integrals). â€‹


This is a nice (although outdated in terms of code) for mathematica used in physics.
Mathematical Physics

These are lectures notes and introduction into geometric quantization by Baez.

This is a journal dedicated to geometric flows.

John Baez, of course, also has a blog of sorts where he posts a great deal many interesting topics. Most are researchtopic sort of stuff.

A paper discussing current and plausible applications of Ricci flow. This paper here also has some.

This paper here also has some applications. â€‹


This is an introduction to real analysis... if brave enough... I have barely gone through...

But it is a workbook style so it is really excellentâ€‹


This is a nice reminder of how to do functional integrals and use Green's functions. â€‹

These are the best notes for learning Ricci flow by Peter Topping. The only thing necessary is an understanding of differential geometry in abstract notation.
AdS/CFT Lectures and Notes
Lecture Series'
Notes in Theoretical Physics

This is an introduction in renormalization group flow in D=4.

Of course, David Tong has lectures on string theory as well. I highly recommend using his conformal lectures for any textbook. â€‹

For something a little more interesting, Witten wrote an article introducing the motivation for using Knot mathematica and interlinking with quantum theory.
Personal Solutions
Partial solutions to Polchinski's String theory:
Thermodynamics & Statistical Physics
â€‹A good resource for running simple simulations on statistical mechanics and thermodynamics is given by Gould and Tobochnik here.
The textbook coupled to these simulations is hereâ€‹
Philosophy & Various Topics
One of my favorite writers and philosophers of all times is Christopher Hitchens. Just to list some of his debates: Does God Exist, The Great God Debate, Is Islam A Religion of Peace, and Does Atheism Poison Everything?
Another person I look towards in psychology and moral psychology is Jonathan Haidt and Jordan Peterson. I already mentioned Peterson's book, but Haidt has a book called: The Righteous Mind. Read it. Together, they also talked about the current University atmosphere here, and Haidt gave a lecture on why university speakers are being shut down here.
