The first lecture describes the meaning of quantum complexity, the analogy between entropy and complexity, and the second law of complexity. Lecture two reviews the connection between the second law of complexity and the interior of black holes...

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 or physics.

There is extensive network of analogies between physics, topology, logic and computation. In this paper we make these analogies precise using the concept of 'closed symmetric monoidal category'. We assume no prior knowledge of category theory.

These lectures cover aspects of solitons with focus on applications to the quantum dynamics of supersymmetric gauge theories and string theory. The lectures consist of four sections, each dealing with a different soliton.
