    Physics by Douglas C Giancoli

    Giancoli’s text is a trusted classic, known for its elegant writing, clear presentation, and quality of content. Using concrete observations and experiences students can relate to, the text features an approach that reflects how science is actually practiced: it starts with the specifics, then moves to the great generalizations and the more formal aspects of a topic to show students why we believe what we believe.Written with the goal of giving students a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of physics in all its aspects, the text uses interesting applications to biology, medicine, architecture, and digital technology to show students how useful physics is in their own everyday lives and in their future professions.

    The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene

    The Elegant Universe is a book by Brian Greene published in 1999 which introduces string theory and provides a comprehensive though non-technical assessment of the theory and some of its shortcomings.

    The Physics Of Everyday Phenomena by Thomas W Griffith

    Includes index.

    Introduction To Electrodynamics by David J Griffiths

    About the Book This book is known for its clear, concise and accessible coverage of standard topics in a logical and pedagogically sound order. The Third Edition features a clear, accessible treatment of the fundamentals of electromagnetic theory, providing a sound platform for the exploration of related applications (ac circuits, antennas, transmission lines, plasmas, optics, etc.). Its lean and focused approach employs numerous examples and problems. More About Title Friendly, informal style. Clear focus on basic electromagnetic theory, providing a sound platform for future exploration of related applications (such as ac circuits, antennas, transmission lines, plasmas, optics, etc.). Large collection of problems: short, highly-focused problems are placed immediately following the relevant text section while longer/more broadly-based problems are at the end of the chapter. More extensive coverage of radiation theory than most texts at this level.NEW: Not a radical revision but rather a fine-tuning of the second edition, building on successful features of the first two editions.NEW: Every sentence has been reviewed for clarity and precision, and revised as needed, particularly regarding very difficult topics.NEW:Slightly expanded sections on energy, momentum and angular momentum.NEW:The Helmholtz theory is now covered in an appendix rather in the main body of the text.NEW:New and revised examples and problems.NEW:Updated references to accessible current literature for students wishing to explore recent developments in this field. Contents Vector Analysis. Electrostatics. Special Techniques. Electrostatic Fields in Matter. Magnetostatics. Magnetic Fields in Matter. Electrodynamics. Conservation Laws. Electromagnetic Waves. Potentials and Fields. Radiation. Electrodynamics and Relativity.

    Relativity by Albert Einstein

    The Nobel Prize-winning scientist's presentation of his landmark theoryAccording to Einstein himself, this book is intended "to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics." When he wrote the book in 1916, Einstein's name was scarcely known outside the physics institutes. Having just completed his masterpiece, The General Theory of Relativity—which provided a brand-new theory of gravity and promised a new perspective on the cosmos as a whole—he set out at once to share his excitement with as wide a public as possible in this popular and accessible book.*First time in Penguin Classics*New introduction by bestselling science author Nigel Calder
