Physics 310: Biological Physics Spring Semester, 2009 Week 2: Reading, 2/2/09 READING THIS WEEK: 1. Finish Nelson Chapter 3. Section 3.3 2. Nelson Chapter 4 up to p. 127. 3. A. Einstein’s original 1905 paper on Brownian motion. Don’t worry if the Einstein paper is tough going on a ±rst read. By the middle of the term, you should be able to read it all. Note that this is one of Einstein’s ”Big Four” papers from 1905: The other three were the photoelectric e²ect, special relativity, and E = mc 2 .
