Next year, 8.05 will be offered as a MOOC on edX. The online course will follow the MIT on-campus version and will be equally rigorous. Reviewing the prerequisite courses (including 8.04) on OCW may be the best way to prepare.

If you’d like to learn a little bit more about Prof. Allan Adams before diving into the 8.04 video lectures, watch him explain his research on string theory in just 30 seconds:

Well – What reply…? Because no matter what is being said, or taught… I am!
And while he Physics Community does not Like it – The Time for Lying is indeed over – No more nonsense about Time-Travel or Multi-Universes –
It all belongs to me…

1) The Rudiments of Finite Quantum Computing and Finite Quantum Computer Programming – The “Q” Bone and the Mathematical Analysis of the IPtX Specification

But..! It is my Next work that will End it All for everyone –

2) The Rudiments of Finite Quantum Chemistry and the Quantum Theory of Matter, Chronicles the Beginnings of Cosmic Evolution –

Now Think… Because my first work it on your Servers… and I developed a New Method for Binary Enumeration that boasts 2 to 5 times 2^x for a Unary Sequence –

Nobel Prize – Nope! Skin Pigment Remains an Issue… Because I’m known all over the White World…
