Modern Physics

By Jeremy I. Pfeffer, Shlomo Nir

This ebook originated from the necessity for an appropriate scholar textual content for the direction "An creation to trendy Physics" given on the Hebrew collage of Jerusalem. This path is open to all scholars who've accomplished the normal first-year physics classes in mechanics, optics, electrical energy and magnetism. Its fundamental target is to supply graduates who're - no matter what their box of specialisation - "modern-physics-literate". The presentation of the direction fabric emphasises the actual elements of the phenomena.
