On the 15th of June 1921, during his stay in Baden-Baden, Germany, British novelist D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930) encountered the German physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955). Lawrence read an English translation of Relativity: The Special and General Theory, which had been published in the previous year. The very next day he wrote: “...

The differential equations of mathematical physics have a twofold character: their physical content and their mathematical solutions. This book discusses the basic tools of theoretical physicists, applied mathematicians, and engineers, providing detailed insights into linear algebra, Fourier transforms, special functions, Laplace a...

In view of recent rapid advances in technology, one may be surprised to learn that at least two of the basic tenets of optics are over a thousand years old, namely the law of reflection and the law of reciprocity. This book serves to update existing knowledge about light with the help of new actual data derived from easily reproduc...

This book discusses entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics in such a way that everyone can understand its subject matter. Entropy is one of the most interesting concepts in physics. Although it is a well-defined concept, it is still perceived by even well-known scientists as a concept cloaked in mystery. It is also the most m...

This book provides insights into the tight connection between fundamental math and mechanics, the basic grounding of physics. It demonstrates that quantum, classical, and relativistic mechanics, historically (and separately) formulated upon an experimental basis, can be regarded as links of a single theoretical chain readily extrac...

This textbook is a unique treatise on the present status of particle physics summarised for physics students at an introductory level: it provides insights into the essential experimental and theoretical techniques needed to start research at modern high energy accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The first three...

By abandoning classical theory and adopting a liberating, empirical approach to fluid behaviour, this book sheds new light on Global Warming, on Ice Ages, why the wind makes waves bigger, and the origin of the Earth’s magnetic field. At heart, it is concerned with how meaning can be extracted from a sequence of measurements—time se...

This book highlights the threefold consilience of sociology, thermodynamics, and the game theory of metaphorical hawks and doves. In a mixed population of social or ethnic groups, segregation into separate colonies is commonly observed in economically hard times. In more affluent times, the groups co-exist in a homogeneous mix.This...

Today, an enormous amount of research is devoted to immobilizing ionic liquid (IL) for electrochemical applications, due to its potential as an excellent substitute for liquid electrolytes. Among the more well-known strategies, entrapping IL in the polymer matrix can be considered as a feasible, low cost method for large scale prod...

This book presents the main results of extensive research on diffraction, radiation and propagation of elastic waves. In recent years, there has been an increase in interest in problems in the fields of diffraction, radiation and propagation of elastic waves associated with the interaction of bodies both with each other and with me...

This book presents the subject of physical kinetics from an original and unique angle, by deriving the Boltzmann equation from atomic motion, making extensive use of Landau’s concept of elementary excitations. It includes external forces, besides statistical motion, in its treatment of the subject wherever relevant. It also details...

This book presents a complex approach to material composition determination based on the analysis of the joint X-ray spectrum, including fluorescence, scattering, and diffraction reflections. It considers fluorescence, scattered, and diffracted radiations within the common problem of analytical spectrum formation. The complex metho...
