Astonishing and inspiring work !
(Chap01_3 explanation equations should read "r^4-r^2", idem about "s")


This is a triumphant effort - possibly the best FEx I've seen yet.

If well it is true that is not really basic as they showed. It comprises undergraduate physics courses like mechanics and dynamics and really complex postgraduate courses as well so you can go deep enough according to your own knowledge.

This is not basic physics; at a minimum its doctoral physics after 5 years!
