PHYSICS SOCIETIES WEB SITE LINKS
American Institute of Physics Publishing (http://physicsworld.com/cws/home)
PhysicsWeb includes a weekly news service covering all aspects of physics. In addition it will be complemented with regular in-depth stories; PatentNews; articles from Physics World, the leading monthly magazine published by the Institute of Physics; conference listings; information about scientific equipment and products and PhysicsJobs, the world's most popular electronic recruitment section.

PHYSICS WEB SITES
College Physics for students of biology and chemistry (http://www.rwc.uc.edu/koehler/biophys/text.html)
It is a complete physics text with problems covering a full year of noncalculus, undergraduate physics; it requires students to have a working knowledge of algebra. The hypertext material is aimed at students taking college-level courses in biology and chemistry, with many connections made in the content to interesting problems from these fields. Topics treated are mechanics, fluids, electricity, magnetism, atomic physics, thermodynamics and wave physics. The problems are well within the capability of average students and are meant to be solved without a calculator.
Galileo Galilei's Notes on Motion (http://www.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/Galileo_Prototype/MAIN.HTM)
Galileo's notes on motion and mechanics document his work on mechanical problems over a period of more than forty years. The manuscript consists of more than 300 pages.
Los Alamos National Laboratory e-Print archive (http://xxx.lanl.gov)
The Los Alamos archive is a vast repository of physics preprints, or e-prints. A primary means for physicists to exchange information.
Official String Theory Web Site (http://www.superstringtheory.com/)
Highly informative and enjoyable for all visitors. Principal pages are presented for basics, experiment, cosmology, black holes, theatre (a virtual lecture hall), people, time line, links, and the forum. Simple, clear explanations make the site accessible and enjoyable for the layperson and yet interesting and useful for students and even specialists.
Physics Modules and Simulations (http://suhep.phy.syr.edu/courses/modsim.html)
This site, from the Physics department at Syracuse University, contains a series of educational modules and simulations. Of particular interest are the Science for the 21st Century and the VRML Gallery of Physics sections. Science for the 21st Century contains eight modules of information on topics ranging from the brain, biology, and health, to global climatic changes.
SPIRES High Energy Physics Literature Database (http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires) run by Stanford Linear Accelertor Center and majority of content comes from asXiv, but SPIRES integrates various sources and serves as a gateway to all information in the field of high energy physics.
Virtual Laboratory-University of Oregon (http://jersey.uoregon.edu/vlab/)
To provide students with truely interactive texts, a series of experiments has been created using Java to demonstrate the application of this method of teaching. These experiments are meant to be conceptual interfaces to the equations of physics and/or represent interaction with data that simulates a real physical experiment. These are targetted at physics classes for non-majors where we currently have no physical lab sections due to resource constraints.
