About physics

An art picture in the physics department at MU

Physics is the science of matter and energy and of interactions between the two. In older terms it is the study of the natural or material world and phenomena; natural philosophy.

In Germany we started to study physics in fifth grade. I was intrigued by fascinating experiments and thought exercises that my teacher, Heiner Platzbecker, presented to us between 7th and 13th grade; in regular class as well as in extracurricular meetings. So I decided to study physics in college, I wanted to understand the basic principles that govern our universe. I studied at the University of Cologne and at the University of Missouri-Columbia. I received a diploma in physics in September 1997 and a Ph.D in physics in August 2002.

Please also visit my page about Teaching. On there I have links about Physics Education Research and my Teaching Philosphy. There are other, non-physics writings scattered across my webpages, too.

Below on this current page, I provide outside physics links with explanations. Other information, such as my CV, my Diploma thesis, my dissertation, and my publications, as well as the papers I wrote during my physics studies are on the following pages:

Outside physics links

  • The Los Alamos Preprint Server
    Ok, it's not in Los Alamos anymore. This is a preprint server for any physics paper in high energy physics (hep-th) or gravity (gr-qc) and many other fields. If it's not there, it's probably not important.

  • Electronic versions of the journals of the APS
    The American Physical Society has some of their journals online. Others (especially newer issues) require subscription.

  • Physics literature database
    In the physics field I was working in, you can find any relevant paper here. Search for author, title, etc... Find out how many people cite your papers.
