#### Physics

Rutgers University Press 2011; US$ 76.00Today's physics textbooks have become encyclopedic, offering students dry discussions, rote formulas, and exercises with little relation to the real world. Physics: The First Science takes a different approach by offering uniquely accessible, student-friendly explanations, historical and philosophical perspectives and mathematics in easy-to-comprehend... more...

#### Optical Coherence and Quantum Optics

Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 92.00This book presents a systematic account of optical coherence theory within the framework of classical optics. more...

#### Computational Physics

Wiley 2015; US$ 135.00 US$ 121.50The use of computation and simulation has become an essential part of the scientific process. Being able to transform a theory into an algorithm requires significant theoretical insight, detailed physical and mathematical understanding, and a working level of competency in programming. This upper-division text provides an unusually broad survey... more...

#### Special Relativity

CRC Press 1968; US$ 81.95The book opens with a description of the smooth transition from Newtonian to Einsteinian behaviour from electrons as their energy is progressively increased, and this leads directly to the relativistic expressions for mass, momentum and energy of a particle. more...

#### Geometrical Methods of Mathematical Physics

Cambridge University Press 1980; US$ 44.00In recent years the methods of modern differential geometry have become of considerable importance in theoretical physics and have found application in relativity and cosmology, high-energy physics and field theory, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics and mechanics. This textbook provides an introduction to these methods - in particular Lie derivatives,... more...
