4. Modern classical physics : optics, fluids, plasmas, elasticity, relativity, and statistical physics [2017]
 Thorne, Kip S., author.
 Princeton : Princeton University Press, 2017.
 Description
 Book — xl, 1511 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 26 cm
 Summary

This firstyear, graduatelevel text and reference book covers the fundamental concepts and twentyfirstcentury applications of six major areas of classical physics that every masters or PhDlevel physicist should be exposed to, but often isn't: statistical physics, optics (waves of all sorts), elastodynamics, fluid mechanics, plasma physics, and special and general relativity and cosmology. Growing out of a fullyear course that the eminent researchers Kip Thorne and Roger Blandford taught at Caltech for almost three decades, this book is designed to broaden the training of physicists. Its six main topical sections are also designed so they can be used in separate courses, and the book provides an invaluable reference for researchers. Presents all the major fields of classical physics except three prerequisites: classical mechanics, electromagnetism, and elementary thermodynamics Elucidates the interconnections between diverse fields and explains their shared concepts and tools Focuses on fundamental concepts and modern, realworld applications Takes applications from fundamental, experimental, and applied physics; astrophysics and cosmology; geophysics, oceanography, and meteorology; biophysics and chemical physics; engineering and optical science and technology; and information science and technology Emphasizes the quantum roots of classical physics and how to use quantum techniques to elucidate classical concepts or simplify classical calculations Features hundreds of color figures, some five hundred exercises, extensive crossreferences, and a detailed index An online illustration package is available to professors.

 Summary

"Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a mustread for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to improve their knowledge of physics' deepest truths."Amazon.com.
