An Elementary Treatise on Electricity: Second Edition

by James Clerk Maxwell

Maxwell made numerous contributions to science, but his greatest work was devoted to electricity. Here, he describes experiments proving that the electric charge can be measured. 1888 edition.

Readable Relativity

by Clement V. Durell

Concise and practical, this text sketches the mathematical background essential to understanding relativity theory. Each subject is illustrated with diagrams, formulas, and examples, plus exercises and solutions....

Capsule Calculus

by Ira Ritow

This text explores calculus from the engineering viewpoint: differential, integral, and time calculus; equations of motion and their solution; complex variables, algebra, and functions; complex and operational...

An Elementary Survey of Celestial Mechanics

by Y. Ryabov & G. Yankovsky

Accessible classic of gravitation theory and celestial mechanics explains methods used by physicists in studying celestial phenomena, including perturbed motion, satellite technology, planetary rotation, and...

Noise and Fluctuations: An Introduction

by D. K. C. MacDonald

This concise study of random processes offers graduate students and research physicists a survey encompassing both relationship of Brownian movement with statistical mechanics and problem of irreversible processes....

Introduction to Electromagnetic Theory

by George E. Owen

by J. Weber

Concise introduction by a pioneer in the investigation of gravitational waves explains the related Riemannian geometry and tensor calculus, conservation laws, and classic experiments. 1961 edition.

Theory of Heat

by James Clerk Maxwell

This classic sets forth the fundamentals of thermodynamics and kinetic theory simply enough to be understood by beginners, yet with enough subtlety to appeal to more advanced readers, too.

Notes on the Quantum Theory of Angular Momentum

by Eugene Feenberg & George Edward Pake

Informative review considers development of fundamental commutation relations for angular momentum components and vector operators. Additional topics include computation and application of matrix elements of...

Advanced Calculus

by H.K Nickerson, D.C. Spencer & N.E. Steenrod
