Deciding the Summer School 2013 topic

As most readers are aware, Bureau 42 does annual summer school sessions. In 2010, we covered quantum mechanics without the math, and in 2011 we covered assessment theory including formulae but not derivations. In 2012, we will cover Einstein’s Theory of Relativity (both special and general), and we will do it in a slightly different fashion: two downloadable files will be offered with each lesson. One version will be devoid of math, as the quantum mechanics series was, while the other will have complete mathematical details in addition to the conceptual lessons. What do you want us to cover in 2013? More after the break.

Here is a simple, one question poll. Please check all topics that you would like to see covered. The final schedule will be based on the popularity of each topic.

    How about Cosmology and the Lamda Cold Dark Matter model? I’ve been reading an early 2006 PDF version ( http://www.astro.caltech.edu/~george/ay21/readings/Ryden_IntroCosmo.pdf ) of Barbara Ryden’s Intorduction to Cosmology (now a formal textbook on Amazon) – very interesting stuff.
