Title  The Fundamentals of Newtonian Mechanics : For an Introductory Approach to Modern Physics 
Author(s)  Spurio, Maurizio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XIX, 390 p. 151 illus., 140 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Classical mechanics is the basis for any universitylevel study of technicalscientific disciplines. But most existing manuals use a technological and engineering approach, with basic aspects sometimes insufficiently highlighted. This book introduces the concepts and applications of classical mechanics into Newtonian formalism. Newtonian dynamics is useful for solving applied physics and engineering problems, but also a fascinating theory anchored in questions posed since the times of the Greek philosophers, regarding space, the flow of time, measurable physical quantities, the physical principles with the mathematical structure needed to describe the Universe, etc. The author aims to encourage students to think about these fundamental aspects and how they will be addressed in modern physics, including the successes and limitations of Newton's mechanics. The book is designed to mirror the progress of the students using it, with earlier chapters assuming no more than basic high school instruction and later ones geared toward subsequent enhanced understanding. The book is designed for students of undergraduate programs in physics, mathematics, chemistry, and engineering who will deal with modern physics, as they will benefit from an approach in which the aspects of classical mechanics are introduced in a propaedeutic approach towards relativistic physics and quantum mechanics

Title  Oscillators and Oscillatory Signals from Smooth to Discontinuous : Geometrical, Algebraic, and Physical Nature 
Author(s)  Pilipchuk, Valery N 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XII, 456 p. 169 illus., 89 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This updated and enriched new edition maintains its complementarity principle in which the subgroup of rotations, harmonic oscillators, and the conventional complex analysis generate linear and weakly nonlinear approaches, whereas translations and reflections, impact oscillators, and hyperbolic Clifford???s algebras, give rise to the essentially nonlinear ???quasiimpact??? methodology based on the idea of nonsmooth temporal substitutions. In the years since ???Nonlinear Dynamics: Between Linear and Impact Limits,??? the previous edition of this book, was published, due to a widening area of applications, a deeper insight into the matter has emerged leading to the rudimentary algebraic view on the very existence of the complementary smooth and nonsmooth base systems as those associated with two different signs of the algebraic equation j2 =?? 1. This edition further includes an overview of applications found in the literature after the publication of first edition, and new physical examples illustrating both theoretical statements and constructive analytical tools. Presents an improved picture of nonsmooth temporal transformations using impact systems as a basis for various analyses; Includes new examples of recent applications for problems in energy absorption/harvesting and resonance interactions; Describes a complementarity principle with a range of applications from smooth to discontinuous oscillatory processes

Title  Relativistic and NonRelativistic Quantum Mechanics : Both at Once 
Author(s)  Grave de Peralta, Luis;Fern??ndez Lozada, Maricela;Farooq, Hira;Eichman, Gage;Singh, Abhishek;Prime, Gabrielle 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XI, 170 p. 52 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Currently, relativistic quantum mechanics is considered an advanced topic only accessible to students who have already received considerable training in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. However, the authors believe that they have found an excellent pedagogic approach for simultaneously introducing both topics. This book is considered an Introductory Quantum Mechanics textbook that presents relativistic quantum mechanics to interested learners with no previous knowledge of it. The authors avoid utilization of the wellknown Lorentz invariant equations. Additionally, they only refer to the KleinGordon and Dirac equations to justify the use of the PovedaPoirierGrave de Peralta (PPGP) equations, upon which this book is solely based (while sporadically referring to wellknown results obtained using the KleinGordon and Dirac equations to avoid unnecessary complications in an introductory book). There also exist two complementary Schr??dingerlike and Paulilike PPGP equations, thesolutions of which are identical to the respective solutions of the KleinGordon and Dirac equations associated with negative kinetic energies. These equations??? relation to the existence of antiparticles is discussed. The intended readership is undergraduate physics, chemistry, and engineering students with no previous knowledge of quantum mechanics, as well as graduate students and professionals interested in the subject

Title  A Novel Approach to Relativistic Dynamics : Integrating Gravity, Electromagnetism and Optics 
Author(s)  Friedman, Yaakov;Scarr, Tzvi 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 196 p. 60 illus., 54 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This selfcontained monograph provides a mathematically simple and physically meaningful model which unifies gravity, electromagnetism, optics and even some quantum behavior. The simplicity of the model is achieved by working in the frame of an inertial observer and by using a physically meaningful least action principle. The authors introduce an extension of the Principle of Inertia. This gives rise to a simple, physically meaningful action function. Visualizations of the geometryare obtained by plotting the action function. These visualizations may be used to compare the geometries of different types of fields. Moreover, a new understanding of the energymomentum of a field emerges. The relativistic dynamics derived here properly describes motion of massive and massless objects under the influence of a gravitational and/or an electromagnetic field, and under the influence of isotropic media. The reader will learn how to compute theprecession of Mercury, the deflection of light, and the Shapiro time delay. Also covered is the relativistic motion of binary stars, including the generation of gravitational waves, a derivation of Snell's Law and a relativistic description of spin. We derive a complexvalued prepotential of an electromagnetic field. The prepotential is similar to the wave function in quantum mechanics. The mathematics is accessible to students after standard courses in multivariable calculus and linear algebra. For those unfamiliar with tensors and the calculus of variations, these topics are developed rigorously in the opening chapters. The unifying model presented here should prove useful to upper undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to seasoned researchers
