9780983039464: A Radically Modern Approach to Introductory Physics Volume 2: Four Forces

This nontraditional text arose from the conviction that science and engineering students would benefit from an introductory course which covers all of physics from a modern point of view. The text takes the perspective of a modern particle physicist and is based more on wave dynamics and relativity than on classical mechanics. The subject matter is split into two volumes of twelve chapters each:

Volume 1:

  • Waves, including geometrical optics
  • Theory of relativity
  • Relativistic matter waves and quantum mechanics
  • Classical mechanics as the geometric optics limit of quantum mechanics

This is Volume 2, which contains:

  • Gravity
  • A treatment of electromagnetism which builds on relativity
  • Atomic, nuclear, and particle physics
  • Statistical mechanics and thermodynamics

The result is a conceptually challenging but mathematically simple text which can be covered in two semesters or three quarters without omitting any content. Such a course has been offered for over ten years at New Mexico Tech to incoming physics majors and other interested students who are well prepared in high school physics and mathematics.
