**Step-by-Step BS to PhD Math/Physics**

by Alex Alaniz

**Publisher**: UC Riverside 2013**Number of pages**: 323

**Description**:

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 and more so in physics with much reduced mystery. Abstract algebra, topology (local and global) folds into a useful, intuitive toolset for ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations, be they linear or nonlinear.

**An Introduction to Topos Physics**

by

**Marios Tsatsos**-

**arXiv**

The basic notion of how topoi can be utilized in physics is presented here. Topos and category theory serve as valuable tools which extend our ordinary set-theoretical conceptions, can give rise to new descriptions of quantum physics.
