Galileo and Newton laid the groundwork for a coherent understanding of how and why objects move. Clerk Maxwell and Faraday completed the picture of a predictable, clockwork Universe. Then, in the early 20th century, the edifice began to crumble. This course, for the mathematically-innocent, will give you a flavour of the weird logic that governs the behaviour of light and matter at the sub-atomic level.
