This 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. Growing out of a full-year course that the eminent researchers Kip Thorne and Roger Blandford taught at Caltech for almost three decades, 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. Presents all the major fields of classical physics except three prerequisites: classical mechanics, electromagnetism, and elementary thermodynamics Elucidates the interconnections between diverse fields and explains their shared concepts and tools Focuses on fundamental concepts and modern, real-world applications Takes applications from fundamental, experimental, and applied physics; astrophysics and cosmology; geophysics, oceanography, and meteorology; biophysics and chemical physics; engineering and optical science and technology; and information science and technology Emphasizes the quantum roots of classical physics and how to use quantum techniques to elucidate classical concepts or simplify classical calculations Features hundreds of color figures, some five hundred exercises, extensive cross-references, and a detailed index An online illustration package is available to professors
A complete basic undergraduate course in modern optics for students in physics, technology, and engineering. The first half deals with classical physical optics; the second, quantum nature of light. Solutions.
"Featuring more than five hundred questions with worked out solutions and detailed illustrations, this book is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems to help you master Honors in physics essentials."--Page 4 of cover.
Written by academics with more than 30 years experience teaching physics and material science, this book will act as a one-stop reference on functional materials. Offering a complete coverage of functional materials, this unique book deals with all three states of the material, providing an insightful overview of this subject not before seen in other texts. Includes solved examples, a number of exercises and answers to the exercises. Aims to promote understanding of the subject as a basis for higher studies. The use of mathematically complicated quantum mechanical equations will be minimized to aid understanding.

Die Spezielle Relativitätstheorie ist nichts Schwieriges und Geheimnisvolles! Studienanfänger der Natur- und Technikwissenschaften können sie mit ihren Kenntnissen der Mathematik und der Physik in vollem Umfang und bis ins Detail verstehen, wenn sie sich die Mühe machen, sich durch dieses Lehrbuch durchzuarbeiten. Zahlreiche, z.T. auch kompliziertere Problemstellungen, bis hin zum Energie-Impuls-Vierervektor und zum elektromagnetischen Feld, werden ausführlich behandelt und zeigen dem Anfänger, wie relativistische Rechnungen anzupacken sind. Auch die bekannten Paradoxa und Paradoxien werden umfassend erklärt. Für den Wissenschaftler, der mit diesem Gebiet schon vertraut ist, ist dieses Lehrbuch wegen seiner umfangreichen Formelauflistungen nicht minder wertvoll. Kurz nach dem einhundertsten Jahrestag der Speziellen Relativitätstheorie liegt hiermit ein Kompendium vor, das dieses Teilgebiet der Physik entzaubert und in die elementare Grundlagenphysik einreiht.

In der Quantentheorie werden Observable durch Operatoren im Hilbert-Raum dargestellt. Der dafür geeignete mathematische Rahmen sind die Cx - Algebren, welche Matrizen und komplexe Funktionen verallgemeinern. Allerdings benötigt man in der Physik auch unbeschränkte Operatoren, deren Problematik eigens untersucht werden muß. Dementsprechend werden zunächst mathematische Fragen studiert und dann die Methoden auf atomare Systeme angewandt. Obgleich man außer dem Wasserstoffatom kaum explizit lösbare Probleme findet, lassen sich nicht nur allgemeine qualitative Fragen, etwa bezüglich des Energiespektrums und Streuverhaltens, beantworten, sondern auch quantitativ kann man auch für kompliziertere Systeme für meßbare Größen Schranken teils befriedigender Genauigkeit finden. Inhaltsverzeichnis: Einleitung: Die Struktur der Quantentheorie; Größenordnungen atomarer Systeme.- Die mathematische Formulierung der Quantenmechanik: Lineare Räume; Algebren; Darstellungen im Hilbertraum; Einparametrige Gruppen; Unbeschränkte Operatoren und quadratische Formen.- Quantendynamik: Das Weyl-System; Der Drehimpuls; Die Zeitentwicklung; Der Limes t ; Störungstheorie; Stationäre Streutheorie.- Atomare Systeme: Das Wasserstoffatom; Das H-Atom in äußeren Feldern; Heliumartige Atome; Streuung am einfachen Atom; Komplexe Atome; Kernbewegung und einfache Moleküle.
