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 Volume 2 - 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. David J. Raymond received a Ph.D. in high energy physics from Stanford University in 1970. He has taught physics and performed research in atmospheric physics at New Mexico Tech since 1973. The publisher will donate a portion of the price of this book to New Mexico Tech for scholarships.
