 Summary

The essential primer for physics students who want to build their physical intuition Presented in A. Zee's incomparably engaging style, this book introduces physics students to the practice of using physical reasoning and judicious guesses to get at the crux of a problem. An essential primer for advanced undergraduates and beyond, Fly by Night Physics reveals the simple and effective techniques that researchers use to think through a problem to its solutionor failing that, to smartly guess the answerbefore starting any calculations. In typical physics classrooms, students seek to master an enormous toolbox of mathematical methods, which are necessary to do the precise calculations used in physics. Consequently, students often develop the unfortunate impression that physics consists of welldefined problems that can be solved with tightly reasoned and logical steps. Idealized textbook exercises and homework problems reinforce this erroneous impression. As a result, even the best students can find themselves completely unprepared for the challenges of doing actual research. In reality, physics is replete with back of the envelope estimates, order of magnitude guesses, and fly by night leaps of logic. Including exciting problems related to cuttingedge topics in physics, from Hawking radiation to gravity waves, this indispensable book will help students more deeply understand the equations they have learned and develop the confidence to start flying by night to arrive at the answers they seek. For instructors, a solutions manual is available upon request.

 Summary

Understanding tensors is essential for any physics student dealing with phenomena where causes and effects have different directions. A horizontal electric field producing vertical polarization in dielectrics; an unbalanced car wheel wobbling in the vertical plane while spinning about a horizontal axis; an electrostatic field on Earth observed to be a magnetic field by orbiting astronautsthese are some situations where physicists employ tensors. But the true beauty of tensors lies in this fact: When coordinates are transformed from one system to another, tensors change according to the same rules as the coordinates. Tensors, therefore, allow for the convenience of coordinates while also transcending them. This makes tensors the gold standard for expressing physical relationships in physics and geometry. Undergraduate physics majors are typically introduced to tensors in specialcase applications. For example, in a classical mechanics course, they meet the "inertia tensor, " and in electricity and magnetism, they encounter the "polarization tensor." However, this piecemeal approach can set students up for misconceptions when they have to learn about tensors in more advanced physics and mathematics studies (e.g., while enrolled in a graduatelevel general relativity course or when studying nonEuclidean geometries in a higher mathematics class). Dwight E. Neuenschwander's Tensor Calculus for Physics is a bottomup approach that emphasizes motivations before providing definitions. Using a clear, stepbystep approach, the book strives to embed the logic of tensors in contexts that demonstrate why that logic is worth pursuing. It is an ideal companion for courses such as mathematical methods of physics, classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and relativity.

 Summary

The 10th edition of Halliday's Fundamentals of Physics building upon previous issues by offering several new features and additions. Examples include a new print component will revised to conform to the Version 5 design; chapter sections organized and numbered to match the Concept Modules; Learning Objectives have been added; illustrations changed to reflect (and advertise) multimedia versions available in WileyPLUS; and new problems provide a means of assigning the multimedia assets. The new edition offers most accurate, extensive and varied set of assessment questions of any course management program in addition to all questions including some form of question assistance  including answer specific feedback  to facilitate success. The text also offers multimedia presentations (videos and animations) of much of the material that provide an alternative pathway through the material for those who struggle with reading scientific exposition. Furthermore, the book includes math review content in both a selfstudy module for more indepth review and also in justintime math videos for a quick refresher on a specific topic. The Halliday content is widely accepted as clear, correct, and complete. The endofchapters problems are without peer. The new design, which was introduced in 9e continues with 10e, making this new edition of Halliday the most accessible and readerfriendly book on the market.

 Description
 Book — xiv, 182 pages : illustrations ; 21 cm
 Summary

Feynman's Tips on Physics is a delightful collection of Richard P. Feynman's insights and an essential companion to his legendary Feynman Lectures on Physics With characteristic flair, insight, and humor, Feynman discusses topics physics students often struggle with and offers valuable tips on addressing them. Included here are three lectures on problemsolving and a lecture on inertial guidance omitted from The Feynman Lectures on Physics. An enlightening memoir by Matthew Sands and oral history interviews with Feynman and his Caltech colleagues provide firsthand accounts of the origins of Feynman's landmark lecture series. Also included are incisive and illuminating exercises originally developed to supplement The Feynman Lectures on Physics, by Robert B. Leighton and Rochus E. Vogt. Feynman's Tips on Physics was coauthored by Michael A. Gottlieb and Ralph Leighton to provide students, teachers, and enthusiasts alike an opportunity to learn physics from some of its greatest teachers, the creators of The Feynman Lectures on Physics.

 Description
 Book — xix, 571 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 26 cm
 Summary

This book uses familiar objects to introduce basic physics concepts, demonstrating the excitement and relevance to professionals in a variety of technical fields. Because its structure is defined by reallife examples, this book explores concepts as they are needed and then revisits them later on when they reappear in other objects. It integrates case studies throughout the chapters to easily convey an understanding and appreciation for physics. For example, discussions of skating, falling balls, and bumper cars are included to explain the Laws of Motion. Air conditioners and automobiles are used to explore thermodynamics. Engineers, architects, and professionals in other technical fields will benefit from the material that connects science to our everyday world.

 Summary

A Wall Street Journal Best Book of 2013 A worldclass physicist and a citizen scientist combine forces to teach Physics 101the DIY way The Theoretical Minimum is a book for anyone who has ever regretted not taking physics in collegeor who simply wants to know how to think like a physicist. In this unconventional introduction, physicist Leonard Susskind and hackerscientist George Hrabovsky offer a first course in physics and associated math for the ardent amateur. Unlike most popular physics bookswhich give readers a taste of what physicists know but shy away from equations or mathSusskind and Hrabovsky actually teach the skills you need to do physics, beginning with classical mechanics, yourself. Based on Susskind's enormously popular Stanford Universitybased (and YouTubefeatured) continuingeducation course, the authors cover the minimumthe theoretical minimum of the titlethat readers need to master to study more advanced topics. An alternative to the conventional gotocollege method, The Theoretical Minimum provides a tool kit for amateur scientists to learn physics at their own pace.

This book arms engineers with the tools to apply key physics concepts in the field. A number of the key figures in the new edition are revised to provide a more inviting and informative treatment. The figures are broken into component parts with supporting commentary so that they can more readily see the key ideas. Material from "The Flying Circus" is incorporated into the chapter opener puzzlers, sample problems, examples and endofchapter problems to make the subject more engaging. Checkpoints enable them to check their understanding of a question with some reasoning based on the narrative or sample problem they just read. Sample Problems also demonstrate how engineers can solve problems with reasoned solutions.

As the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 50 years, Knight's Physics for Scientists and Engineers was published to widespread critical acclaim from professors and students. In this eagerly awaited second edition, Knight builds on the researchproven instructional techniques he introduced, as well as national data of student performance, to take student learning even further. Knight's unparalleled insight into student learning difficulties, and his impeccably skillful crafting of text and figures at every level  from macro to micro  to address these difficulties, results in a uniquely effective and accessible book, leading students to a deeper and betterconnected understanding of the concepts and more proficient problemsolving skills. Building on an NSFsponsored educational research program and input from tens of thousands of student users, the second edition refines and extends the pedagogical innovations that years of use has now shown to be effective.Unprecedented analysis of national student metadata has allowed every problem to be systematically enhanced for educational effectives, and to ensure problem sets of ideal topic coverage, balance of qualitative and quantitative problems, and range of difficulty and duration. The second edition comes with the latest edition of MasteringPhysicsaA A  the most advanced, educationally effective (as shown by gains in student exams scores and independent tests), and widely used online physics tutorial and homework system in the world. It provides the largest library of researchbased tutorials and textbook problems available, and automatic grading of activities as wide ranging as numerical problems with randomized values and algebraic answers to freehand drawn graphs and freebody diagrams.

 Description
 Book — xiv, 150 p. : ill., ports. ; 23 cm.
 Summary

Drain three pointers, slam dunk easily, and sink that buzzerbeater from half court with the help of simple science. Your coach, physicist John J. Fontanella, shows how you can improve your game if you take advice from Isaac Newton. As you read, relive some of the great moments in the game  this time with a scientist and diehard basketball fan as your color analyst. Find out why you ought to put spin on the ball. Get tips on how to improve your free throw and increase your percentage from the charity stripe. You'll even learn how to shatter the backboard, if that's something you've always dreamed of doing. With photographs and simple high school formulas, physics professor Fontanella  who played in college against Pittsburgh and Syracuse  reveals the key pieces of physics that underscore basketball. He covers almost every aspect of the game, weaving in stories from games he's played and games he's seen, and tales from basketball history and folklore. Physics comes alive as you see how Kobe Bryant, Wilt "the Stilt" Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Becky Hammon, and J. J. Reddick do naturally the things that Isaac Newton says they should.

 Summary

Why everything we think about fundamental physical laws needs to change, and why the greatest mysteries of physics are not at the ends of the universe but as close as the nearest ice cube or grain of salt Not since Richard Feynman has a Nobel Prizewinning physicist written with as much panache as Robert Laughlin does in this revelatory and essential book. Laughlin proposes nothing less than a new way of understanding fundamental laws of science. In this age of superstring theories and BigBang cosmology, we're used to thinking of the unknown as being impossibly distant from our everyday lives. But we haven't reached the end of science, Laughlin argues  only the end of reductionist thinking. If we consider the world of emergent properties instead, suddenly the deepest mysteries are as close as the nearest ice cube or grain of salt. And he goes farther: the most fundamental laws of physics  such as Newton's laws of motion and quantum mechanics  are in fact emergent. They are properties of large assemblages of matter, and when their exactness is examined too closely, it vanishes into nothing. A Different Universe takes us into a universe where the vacuum of space has to be considered a kind of solid matter, where sound has quantized particles just like those of light, where there are many phases of matter, not just three, and where metal resembles a liquid while superfluid helium is more like a solid. It is a universe teeming with natural phenomena still to be discovered. This is a truly mindaltering book that shows readers a surprising, exquisitely beautiful and mysterious new world.

89. Perfectly reasonable deviations from the beaten track : the letters of Richard P. Feynman [2005]
 Feynman, Richard P. (Richard Phillips), 19181988
 New York : Basic Books, c2005.
 Description
 Book — xxiii, 486 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.
 Summary

An extraordinary volume of neverbeforepublished letters written by one of America's most beloved scientists Richard P. Feynman, brilliant physicist and beloved teacher, is an iconic figure in the world of science. Born in 1918, Feynman received his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1942 and went on to win the Nobel Prize in physics in 1965 for his research in quantum electrodynamics. Besides his work as a physicist, Feynman was at various times an artist, dancer, bongo player, and lock picker. While there have been many books celebrating his myriad scientific achievements and personal eccentricities, his personal correspondence has remained largely hidden from view. Now, for the first time, we have the privilege of reading his wonderful letters to students, longlost relatives, former lovers, crackpots, colleagues, and diehard fans. From his early love letters to his first wife Arline, who died of tuberculosis, to his decadeslong attempt to resign from the National Academy of Sciences, Feynman shares his views on feminism, fatherhood and everything in between. These letters, which span a full halfcentury, tell the story of a marvellous and inventive life, and reveal the pathos and wisdom of a man many felt close to but few really knew. By turns abrasive and charming, intimate and inspiring, we see the many sides of Richard Feynman, and treasure him all the more.

A Nobel Prizewinning physicist, a loving husband and father, an enthusiastic teacher, a surprisingly accomplished bongo player, and a genius of the highest caliberRichard P. Feynman was all these and more. Perfectly Reasonable Deviations From the Beaten Trackcollecting over forty years' worth of Feynman's lettersoffers an unprecedented look at the writer and thinker whose scientific mind and lust for life made him a legend in his own time. Containing missives to and from such scientific luminaries as Victor Weisskopf, Stephen Wolfram, James Watson, and Edward Teller, as well as a remarkable selection of letters to and from fans, students, family, and people from around the world eager for Feynman's advice and counsel, Perfectly Reasonable Deviations From the Beaten Track not only illuminates the personal relationships that underwrote the key developments in modern science, but also forms the most intimate look at Feynman yet available. Feynman was a man many felt close to but few really knew, and this collection reveals the full wisdom and private passion of a personality that captivated everyone it touched. Perfectly Reasonable Deviations From the Beaten Track is an eloquent testimony to the virtue of approaching the world with an inquiring eye; it demonstrates the full extent of the Feynman legacy like never before. Edited and with additional commentary by his daughter Michelle, it's a mustread for Feynman fans everywhere, and for anyone seeking to better understand one of the towering figuresand defining personalitiesof the twentieth century.
