HyperPhysics is an educational website about physics topics. The information architecture of the website is based on HyperCards (as it was the original development) and a thesaurus organization, with thousands of controlled links and usual trees organizing topics from general to specific. It also exploits concept maps to facilitate smooth navigation. HyperPhysics is hosted by Georgia State University and authored by Georgia State faculty member Dr. Rod Nave.[1]

Various teaching and education facilitators make use of HyperPhysics material through projects[2] and organizations,[3] and also publishers which use SciLinks. [4]



Various areas of physics are accessible through broad categories.[5]


Related applied mathematics are also covered.[6]
