It's a blog! Mainly of book reviews.
Feynman answers some mysteries he raised in previous lectures. Lesson: one must not forget that fields carry energy and therefore also momentum and angular momentum. If you've lost some mechanical energy or momentum, look for it in a field!
This makes a good second book on plasma physics - Chen's Introduction to Plasma Physics has yet to be beaten as a first book on the subject in my experience. But Cairns provides a good reference on the basics of a wide variety of theoretical approaches, phenomena, experimental methods and applications in plasma physics, admittedly requiring a much greater mathematical knowledge than Chen, but without being terrifying like Ichimaru's "Basic" Principles of Plasma Physics, which is anything but basic. A minor irritation is Cairns' use of the informal "goes as" for "proportional to." Not sure why it winds me up so, given I know perfectly well what he means.
Of the three Bernie the Burglar books I've read, this is the daftest - and best! And best because daftest. Block's deliberate send-up of the country house mystery genre is silly, funny and unsurprisingly involves corpses piling up in a place Bernie is trying to steal from...
Everybody else is panicking, throwing things overboard and baling water like crazy but Jonah is asleep at the bottom of the boat!
People in disguise, mistaken identity, nobles in the countryside, frustrated romance - must be a Shakespeare comedy, right? Except it's not actually very funny...
The final chapter is on applications. This means fusion reactors and "space physics"; what he really means is naturally occurring plasmas, which, since they constitute ~99% of "normal" matter, makes them of great scientific interest.
A brief excursion into the realms of plasma instrumentation - exactly how does one measure what the density, temperature or electromagnetic field is in a plasma? Fairly superficial coverage but better than nothing.
Jonah can't hide; God stirs up a storm!
Once again the Pearl Poet demonstrates great powers of description.
An inordinate amount of time and dialogue spent setting up Bernie's English Country House Mystery...
