The Usborne Illustrated Dictionary of Science: A Complete Reference Guide to Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Paperback)
"This is the ideal reference companion for students of biology, chemistry and physics. Its clarity of style and attractive layout promote a full understanding of each science subject." — Back Cover
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." — Albert Einstein
"The purpose of this text is to provide the student with familiarity with basic electronic components and sufficient understanding of modern measurement equipment and techniques that he may intelligently undertake experimental investigations." — Preface, 1969
"The challenge and responsibility of modern engineering practice demand a high level of creative activity which, in turn, requires the support of strong analytical capability. The subject of engineering mechanics, which includes statics and dynamics, constitutes one of the cornerstones of analytical capability, and all engineers should have a basic background in this field of study." — J. L. Meriam, Author
"This textbook presupposes a familiarity with the elements of chemistry, physics, and calculus." — Preface
This book makes a great reference for educators who need to explain physics concepts in non-specialist terms.
"The Volume Library, which is revised and updated annually, was designed for interested, well-informed people—students and adults who need an authoritative reference book for their home book-shelves, and parents who want to keep abreast of the subjects their children are studying in school."—Preface
Exploring Creation with Physics, Second Edition (Hardback Textbook, Paperback Solutions and Tests, Paperback Tests)
This Physics curriculum is written with homeschoolers in mind and encourages self-directed learning.
"You had more questions, and we've got more answers!" — Back Cover
Founded in 1958, CliffsNotes (originally Cliff's Notes) provides useful summaries for hundreds of items from classical literature to science and math. Although a helpful staple for the interpretation of literature for over 50 years, they are no substitute for reading the real book.
This biography, written for young students, presents the life and accomplishments of the Polish-born chemist, Marie Curie, and discusses her discovery of radium and the development of the use of X-rays in medicine.
This textbook is aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics, theoretical physics, and engineering, who will find it a welcome introduction to the subject, requiring only a minimal mathematical background. The work may also serve as an excellent self-study guide for researchers who use distributions in various fields.
Mathematics and Its Applications: Division Algebras: Octonions, Quaternions, Complex Numbers and the Algebraic Design of Physics (Hardback)
"This is a book of ideas. Most of them arise out of my fascination with the division algebras and their tantalizing potential for a deep connection to physics....Inevitably many of these mathematical ideas will be shown to be intimately linked to the design of our physical world." — Geoffrey M. Dixon, Author
Princeton Landmarks in Mathematics and Physics: The Classical Groups: Their Invariants and Representations (Softcover)
Originally published in 1939, this second edition of Hermann Weyl's renowned volume on the classical groups in mathematics has been updated by Princeton University Press and is recommended for the shelves of advanced students, teaching faculty, and professional physicists and mathematicians.
"Lie groups and lie algebras have become essential to many parts of mathematics and theoretical physics, with Lie algebras a central object of interest in their own right." — From the back cover
Springer Series in Computational Mathematics 31: Geometric Numerical Integration: Structure-Preserving Algorithms for Ordinary Differential Equations, Second Edition (Hardback)
"Numerical methods that preserve properties of Hamiltonian systems, reversible systems, differential equations on manifolds and problems with highly oscillatory solutions are the subject of this book." — From the back cover
Monographs and Texts in Statistical Physics: Cellular Automata Modeling of Physical Systems (Softcover)
"This book provides a self-contained introduction to cellular automata and lattice Boltzmann techniques. ... This will be a valuable book for graduate students and researchers working in statistical physics, solid state physics, chemical physics, and computer science." — From the back cover.
Texts in Applied Mathematics 41: Integral Transforms and Their Applications, Third Edition (Hardback)
"This book is an introduction to and a reference for the applications of integral transforms to a wide variety of common mathematical problems. Emphasis is placed on the development of techniques and on the connection between properties of transforms and the kinds of problems for which they provide tools." — From the back cover
"Written by two researchers in the field, this book is a reference to explain the principles and fundamentals in a self-contained, complete and consistent way. Much attention is paid to the didactical value, with the chapters interconnected and based on each other." — From the back cover
"This book provides an introduction to the essentials of relativistic effects in quantum chemistry, and a reference work that collects all the major developments in this field. It is designed for the graduate student and the computational chemist with a good background in nonrelativisitic theory." — From the back cover
North-Holland Personal Library: Solitons and Instantons: An Introduction to Solitons and Instantons in Quantum Field Theory (Softcover)
"The book offers an elementary and unified introduction to the non-perturbative results obtained in relativistic quantum field theory based on classical soliton and instanton solutions." — From the back cover
"This book will be an excellent reference for researchers and graduate students working in theoretical physics, condensed matter physics and field theory." — From the back cover
"We believe this book does fill a gap in the literature ... available on the theory of critical phenomena. ... [At] the end of each chapter we give several problems, which we hope will help readers to become familiar with the concepts and techniques introduced in that chapter. Complete solutions to all the problems are given at the back of the book." — The authors in the Preface
Analytical Mechanics: A Comprehensive Treatise on the Dynamics of Constrained Systems; For Engineers, Physicists, and Mathematicians (Hardback)
From the Preface: “This book is a classical and detailed introduction to advanced analytical mechanics (AM), with special emphasis on its basic principles and equations of motion, as they apply to the most general constrained mechanical systems with a finite number of degrees of freedom..."
