|Principles of Optics: Electromagnetic Theory of Propagation, Interference and Diffraction of Light
Lowest new price: $72.25
Lowest used price: $45.99
List price: $105.00
Author: Max Born
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press
Principles of Optics is one of the classic science books of the twentieth century, and probably the most influential book in optics published in the past forty years. This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new material covering the CAT scan, interference with broad-band light and the so-called Rayleigh-Sommerfeld diffraction theory. This edition also details scattering from inhomogeneous media and presents an account of the principles of diffraction tomography to which Emil Wolf has made a basic contribution. Several new appendices are also included. This new edition will be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers working in most areas of optics.

|Introduction to Solid State Physics
Lowest new price: $80.41
Lowest used price: $74.99
List price: $63.45
Author: Charles Kittel
Since the publication of the first edition over 50 years ago, Introduction to Solid State Physics has been the standard solid state physics text for physics students. The author's goal from the beginning has been to write a book that is accessible to undergraduates and consistently teachable. The emphasis in the book has always been on physics rather than formal mathematics. With each new edition, the author has attempted to add important new developments in the field without sacrificing the book's accessibility and teachability.
* A very important chapter on nanophysics has been written by an active worker in the field. This field is the liveliest addition to solid state science during the past ten years
* The text uses the simplifications made possible by the wide availability of computer technology. Searches using keywords on a search engine (such as Google) easily generate many fresh and useful references

Author: Dr. Ben Still
Using LEGO (R) blocks to create a uniquely visual and clear depiction of the way our universe is put together. This is the perfect introduction to the enigmatic and fascinating world of Quantum Physics.Our story starts with the Big Bang, and along the way, the constructs and interactions within and among atoms and sub-atomic particles, and the forces that play upon them, are clearly explained, with each LEGO (R) block representing a different atomic or sub-atomic particle. The different colours and size denote what that particle is and its relationship with the other 'building blocks'.Each chapter is presented in digestible chunks, using toy building blocks to illustrate the ideas and experiments that have led to some of the biggest discoveries of the past 150 years.Soon you'll be able to construct every element in the Universe using a box of LEGO (R) and this book!
|Essential Calculus-based Physics Study Guide Workbook: Electricity and Magnetism (Learn Physics with Calculus Step-by-Step) (Volume 2)
Lowest new price: $20.74
Lowest used price: $7.47
List price: $21.99
Author: Chris McMullen
LEVEL: This book covers the electricity and magnetism topics from physics with calculus at the university level. (If instead you're looking for a trig-based physics book, search for ISBN 1941691102.) Note that the calculus-based edition includes all of material from the trig-based book, plus ample coverage of the calculus-based material.
DESCRIPTION: This combination of physics study guide and workbook focuses on essential problem-solving skills and strategies:
VOLUME: This volume covers electricity and magnetism, including electric fields, Gauss's law, circuits, Kirchhoff's rules, magnetic fields, right-hand rules, the law of Biot-Savart, Ampere's law, Lenz's law, Faraday's law, AC circuits, an introduction to Maxwell's equations, and more.
- Fully solved examples with explanations show you step-by-step how to solve standard university physics problems.
- Handy charts tabulate the symbols, what they mean, and their SI units.
- Problem-solving strategies are broken down into steps and illustrated with examples.
- Answers, hints, intermediate answers, and explanations are provided for every practice exercise.
- Terms and concepts which are essential to solving physics problems are defined and explained.
AUTHOR: The author, Dr. Chris McMullen, has over 20 years of experience teaching university physics in California, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana (and has also taught physics to gifted high school students). Dr. McMullen currently teaches physics at Northwestern State University of Louisiana. He has also published a half-dozen papers on the collider phenomenology of superstring-inspired large extra dimensions. Chris McMullen earned his Ph.D. in particle physics from Oklahoma State University (and his M.S. in physics from California State University, Northridge).
Dr. McMullen is well-known for:
MATH REVIEW: A separate chapter covers essential calculus skills (including valuable integration techniques).
- engaging physics students in challenging ideas through creativity
- breaking difficult problems down into manageable steps
- providing clear and convincing explanations to subtle issues
- his mastery of physics and strong background in mathematics
- helping students become more fluent in practical math skills
SOLUTIONS: The back of the book includes a detailed section of hints, intermediate answers, final answers, and explanations to help you solve each problem one step at a time. It's like having a physics tutor in the back of the book. (However, if you would prefer complete solutions, search for ISBN 1941691137.)
USES: This study guide workbook can be used to:
CALCULATOR: Every problem in this book can be solved without the aid of a calculator. This is handy for students who will take a standardized exam like the GRE Physics, which doesn't allow a calculator. (It's also a handy skill to be able to estimate an answer without relying on a calculator.)
- learn how to solve fundamental problems in physics with calculus
- find fully-solved examples of standard physics problems
- develop fluency in physics via practice exercises that include answers, hints, and explanations
- quickly find the most essential physics terms, concepts, and formulas
- prepare for the AP physics exam
- review for standardized exams, such as AP Physics or the fundamentals of the GRE.
