TitleThe beauty of physics : patterns, principles, and perspectives
Author(s)A.R.P. Rau
Description1 online resource (xii, 219 pages) : illustrations (black and white)
Abstract NoteThis title is about ideas and themes in physics. A small set of them apply over broad areas of physics, and in that wide reach lies some of the power, beauty, and attraction of the subject. Many metaphors from ordinary language or other disciplines have been adopted by physicists, albeit with a specific and distinct flavour. The selection of topics reflects the author's own four-decade career in research physics and his resultant perspective on the subject

TitleFrom strange simplicity to complex familiarity : a treatise on matter, information, life and thought
Author(s)Manfred Eigen
Description1 online resource : illustrations (black and white, and colour)
Abstract NoteThis title presents a vivid argument for a unity of all natural sciences. This unity engenders the 'complex familiarity' of the world in which we live and which can be described in 'strangely simple' theoretical terms, leading to new insights into the mysterious phenomenon of life

TitleCausal reasoning in physics
Author(s)Mathias Frisch
PublicationUnited Kingdom, Cambridge University Press, 2014.
Descriptionviii, 256p
Abstract NoteMuch has been written on the role of causal notions and causal reasoning in the so-called 'special sciences' and in common sense. But does causal reasoning also play a role in physics? Mathias Frisch argues that, contrary to what influential philosophical arguments purport to show, the answer is yes. Time-asymmetric causal structures are as integral a part of the representational toolkit of physics as a theory's dynamical equations. Frisch develops his argument partly through a critique of anti-causal arguments and partly through a detailed examination of actual examples of causal notions in physics, including causal principles invoked in linear response theory and in representations of radiation phenomena. Offering a new perspective on the nature of scientific theories and causal reasoning, this book will be of interest to professional philosophers, graduate students, and anyone interested in the role of causal thinking in science.

TitleModern classical physics: Optics, Fluids, Plasmas, Elasticity, Relativity, and Statistical Physics
Author(s)Kip S. Thorne ;Roger D. Blandford
PublicationPrinceton , Princeton University Press, 2017.
Descriptionxl, 1511p.
Abstract NoteThis first-year, graduate-level text and reference book covers the fundamental concepts and twenty-first-century applications of six major areas of classical physics that every masters- or PhD-level physicist should be exposed to, but often isn't: statistical physics, optics (waves of all sorts), elastodynamics, fluid mechanics, plasma physics, and special and general relativity and cosmology. this book is designed to broaden the training of physicists. Its six main topical sections are also designed so they can be used in separate courses, and the book provides an invaluable reference for researchers.

Edition10th
PublicationHarlow, Pearson, 2016.
Description1095p.
Abstract NoteFor more than five decades, Sears and Zemansky's College Physics has provided the most reliable foundation of physics education for students around the world. New coauthors Phil Adams and Ray Chastain thoroughly revised the Tenth Edition by incorporating the latest methods from educational research. New features help students develop greater confidence in solving problems, deepen conceptual understanding, and strengthen quantitative-reasoning skills, while helping them connect what they learn with their other courses and the changing world around them. New media resources in MasteringPhysics create an unrivalled learning suite for students and instructors.

TitlePhysics on your feet: Berkely Graduate Exam Questions or Ninety Minutes of Shame but a Ph. D. for the Rest of Your Life!
Author(s)Dmitry Budker;Alexander O. Sushkov;Vasiliki Demas (ill)
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2015.
Descriptionxiii, 203p.
Abstract NotePhysics on Your Feet gives a collection of physics problems covering the broad range of topics in classical and modern physics that were, or could have been, asked at oral PhD exams at Berkeley. The questions are easy to formulate, but some of them can only be answered using an out-of-the-box approach. Detailed solutions are provided, from which the reader is guaranteed to learn a lot about the physicists' way of thinking. The book is also packed full of cartoons and dry humour to help take the edge off the stress and anxiety surrounding exams. This is a helpful guide to students preparing for their exams, as well as to University lecturers looking for good instructive problems. No exams are necessary to enjoy the book!

TitleIntroduction to the Physics of Matter : Basic atomic, molecular, and solid-state physics
Author(s)by Nicola Manini
DescriptionXI, 276 p. 165 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book offers an up-to-date, compact presentation of basic topics in the physics of matter, from atoms to molecules to solids, including elements of statistical mechanics. The adiabatic separation of the motion of electrons and nuclei in matter and its spectroscopic implications are outlined for molecules and recalled regularly in the study of the dynamics of gases and solids. Numerous experiments are described and more than 160 figures give a clear visual impression of the main concepts. Sufficient detail of mathematical derivations is provided to enable students to follow easily. The focus is on present-day understanding and especially on phenomena fitting various independent-particle models. The historical development of this understanding, and phenomena such as magnetism and superconductivity, where interparticle interactions and nonadiabatic effects play a crucial role, are mostly omitted. A final outlook section stimulates the curiosity of the reader to pursue the study of such advanced topics in graduate courses
Contents NoteIntroduction -- Basic ingredients -- Typical scales -- Atoms -- One-electron atom/ions -- Many-electron atoms -- Molecules -- The adiabatic separation -- Chemical and nonchemical bonding -- Statistical physics -- Equilibrium ensembles -- Ideal systems -- Solids -- The microscopic structure of solids -- Electrons in crystals
