Ph 136b is based on the text Applications of Classical Physics by Roger Blandford and Kip Thorne. It grew out of their notes for this course. The book may be published in 2017 by Princeton University Press. Until then, we have the authors' and publisher's permission to use the 2016 proof version, provided you do not post or circulate the pdfs. The publisher may come after you if you do. The chapters are password-protected and accessible only from the .caltech.edu domain. Ph 136b will cover approximately Chapters 13-23. These chapters can be accessed below.
We might post additional class notes and other materials here.
