9780521528788: Theoretical Concepts in Physics: An Alternative View of Theoretical Reasoning in Physics

This second edition of a popular text demonstrates how physics can be appreciated through a series of case studies spanning a complete university physics course. Highlights include three new chapters on Newton's laws (one on ancient astronomy up to the time of Galileo, one on Galileo, and one on Newton); a new chapter on dimensional methods, chaos and self-organized criticality; and a new chapter on the technology of cosmology. Although all the arguments are presented precisely in physical and mathematical terminology, the book is written in a relatively non-technical manner, intended to convey a deep understanding and appreciation of the incredible achievements of theorists in creating the structure of modern physics. First Edition Hb (1984): 0-521-25550-3 First Edition Pb (1984): 0-521-27553-9

Book Description:

This unique book shows how physics, as practised by professional physicists, can be appreciated through a series of case studies spanning essentially the whole of a university physics course. Although all the arguments are set out precisely in physical and mathematical terms, it is written in a lively and non-technical manner, intended to deepen understanding and appreciation of the incredible achievements of theorists in creating the structure of modern physics. The first edition has been enjoyed by many generations of students; this new edition extends and deepens all the topics.

Descrizione libro CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. A highly original, and truly novel, approach to theoretical reasoning in physics. This book illuminates the subject from the perspective of real physics as practised by research scientists. It is intended to be a supplement to the final years of an undergraduate course in physics and assumes that the reader has some grasp of university physics. By means of a series of seven case studies, the author conveys the excitement of research and discovery, highlighting the intellectual struggles to attain understanding of some of the most difficult concepts in physics. Case studies include the origins of Newton s law of gravitation, Maxwell s equations, mechanics and dynamics, linear and non-linear, thermodynamics and statistical physics, the origins of the concepts of quanta, special relativity, general relativity and cosmology. The approach is the same as that in the highly acclaimed first edition, but the text has been completely revised and many new topics introduced. Codice libro della libreria AAA9780521528788
